RICE & SHINE
Rice & Shine is a ground-up community initiative by Pope Jai Thai.
Amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, many Singaporeans are facing retrenchment, pay cuts, and financial difficulty. As a result, putting food on the table is a concern that many households are facing.
As a restaurant, how we can support the community in this tough time is by providing food to them. We aim to provide hot and nutritional meals to the underprivileged communities and those affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
Why RICE & SHINE
We aim to lighten the burden of the community by putting RICE on the table, creating smiles that SHINE on people's faces.
