A bowl of bubur lambuk (rice porridge) is a must-have for every Ramadan and is considered a comfort food to many in Malaysia.
With that in mind, a total of 130,000 bowls of Maggi bubur lambuk were freshly cooked by the company’s in-house chefs recently and distributed to 135 locations throughout Malaysia including Sabah and Sarawak.
The rice porridge were mainly distributed to frontliners comprising of the Malaysian army, firefighters, police officers, government offices and healthcare workers, all of whom have selflessly devoted their time and energy in the nation’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We acknowledge the invaluable dedication and sacrifices by our frontline heroes who had immensely contributed to the needs of the community throughout this pandemic,” Maggi Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad Business Executive Officer Geetha Balakrishna said in a statement.
“This is our way of thanking them while we extend our Raya (Eid al-Fitr) cheers to them, as they continue to serve the nation during these challenging times.”
The Maggie bubur lambuk were also distributed to the communities in need, such as the B40 families (households that earn less than AUD1,000 a month) and the residents of 52 housing commissions (Program Perumahan Rakyat), as well as orphanage and welfare homes.
In support of the event organised by Maggie, Malaysia’s leading rice producer Jasmine Food Corporation contributed 2,500 kg of fragrant rice while ALIF sponsored 1,250 litres of cooking oils.
Maggi also received 140 liquefied petroleum gas cylinders from BHPetrogas and 1,250 litres of coconut milk from Kara Malaysia, a local producer that specialises in coconut milk products.
