On 1stSeptember 2019, Creative Eateries had the opportunity to participate in the 4thbiennial Project We Care Garden Party at Istana, hosted by President Halimah Yacob, organised by People’s Association.
This year’s event aims toencapsulate our nation’s forward-looking vision in embracing technology, while not forgetting to care and contribute back to the community.
The event brought smiles on the faces of 1,500 beneficiaries that include low-income families, lonely elderly and less privileged children. They were given a rare opportunity to visit Istana and to enjoy thedigital interactive activities, engagement booths such as “pen-a-wish” lantern display and also an extensive selection of multi-ethnic cuisines.
Creative Eateries supported the cause by setting up a live food station and whipped up a halal-certified dish, Vegetarian Bolognaise!
Taking into consideration of our Muslim beneficiaries, we were thrilled to partner up with Ban Choon, who kindly provided us with the supply of Omnimince. We added the Omnimince in ourVegetarian Bolognaisefor the beneficiaries to enjoy! Omnimince is a all-purpose plant-based pork, a mock meat substitute which plays a very special role to further enhance the overall flavour of the dish.
Mr. Anthony Wong, CEO of Creative Eateries also participated in the Mass Digital Lights Symphony Activity with all the other Business Leaders for a delightful performance that evening.
Creative Eateries is honoured to be a part of this significant event for us to give back to the community through the efforts of our Catering Division. Of course, our volunteers certainly spent an equally quality time there, a win-win situation here!
Now, let’s hear what our volunteers got to say:
“Volunteering gives you an opportunity to change people’s lives, including your own. It gives you the satisfaction of playing a role in someone else’s life, helping people who may not be able to help themselves. Volunteering is a way of giving back to your community while developing important social skills and gaining valuable work experience all at the same time.” – Raymond, Catering Operations Executive
“I’m very happy to be given the opportunity to help people, as an individual and as an organisation through this meaningful event. Although it was very tiring, it’s all worth it for the smiles that you see on their faces.” – Stanley, Catering Operations Executive
