Nando’s Malaysia has launched a nationwide Nando’s Kind Dining initiative from May 15-31, where patrons can donate non-perishable food items and receive a 20 percent discount on their own Nando’s meals.
Kind Dining is a community support initiative organised by Nando’s in partnership with food security NGOs such as The Lost Food Project, Suriana Malaysia, Yayasan Foodbank, GoJobMy, Kechara Soup Kitchen and other local charity homes within the Nando’s community.
The first-of-its-kind effort by Nando’s will involve the collection of non-perishable food items that can be channelled to vulnerable communities whose livelihoods have been impacted by Covid-19 and the Movement Control Order (MCO).
“We hope to rally more people together and to distribute as
much food as possible through Kind Dining, just in time for the Raya celebrations and keep the flame of hope burning in our communities,” said Stephen Chew, chief executive officer of Nando’s Malaysia.
To be part of Nando’s Kind Dining, members of the public can simply drop by at any of the 72 Nando’s outlets operating currently with their food donations.
They will then receive 20 percent off for their next dine in or takeaway order at Nando’s. Suitable items for donation include new and unopened dry rice, dry noodles, canned foods, cooking oil, bottled drinks, powdered milk, instant
oats, flour, and sugar.
All items must be Halal, edible and before their use-by date.
In addition to Kind Dining, Nando’s has also been donating food through its Chicken with a Heart initiative, which is carried out in partnership with NGOs such as Kechara Soup Kitchen, Yayasan Foodbank Malaysia, Suriana Welfare Society and GoJobMy.
The effort, which started three months ago, has seen total donation of over RM70,000 worth of food which was delivered to over 5,000 frontliners and vulnerable members of the community.
