Buy a Meal, Support Local, with JCI Malta
JCI Malta has launched a project called ‘Buy a Meal’, which looks to support local SMEs in the catering/hospitality industry during these unprecedented times, while also helping the more vulnerable in society.
This project is aimed towards those people who want to help during the pandemic (and beyond) but might not know what they can do.
‘Buy a Meal’ is a straightforward and simple solution that, with as little as €10, helps two sectors of society. All one needs to do is go on https://www.jci.org.mt/support-local/buy-a-meal and choose how many meals you’d like to buy, pay online, and the meals will then be ordered from the local restaurants at random and delivered to those who need it, in keeping with all the necessary hygiene procedures.
Through this concept people will be helping those smaller businesses who are experiencing a decline in their business since being forced to close their doors, while also helping the less fortunate during this pandemic. Furthermore there is also the opportunity for employment during these meagre times should restaurants wish to set up or expand their delivery service.
“We are all living through these unprecedented times that have disrupted lives and plans, but it has also presented us with an opportunity to think outside the box and realise that we can still launch initiatives that help both the business community as well as the vulnerable in society. We are very proud of this initiative and thrilled to see that it has been so eagerly embraced and supported by people”, said Markus Behmann, JCI Malta National President 2020.
