TL;DR – This offer will stand for as long as Uncle Sky Singapore Hainanese Chicken Rice is around.
People say there’s no free lunch in the world but this Hainanese chicken rice stall in Maxwell Food Centre is giving away free lunches to prove us all wrong.
Free chicken rice for Pioneer Generation
Located at Maxwell Food Centre, Uncle Sky Singapore Hainanese Chicken Rice is giving away free chicken rice to 100 senior citizens from the Pioneer Generation every Wednesday.
This giveaway allows the 100 Pioneer Generation members to redeem up to two meals a day.
Yes, you heard it right – not one but TWO (!)
$1.50 Chicken Rice
On all other days, senior citizens from the Pioneer Generation can enjoy a plate of chicken rice at only $1.50 (Usual price: $3.00).
This offer is also extended to the members of Singapore’s Merdeka Generation.
To qualify for the above offer, Pioneer and Merdeka Generation members would simply need to present their identity cards at point of purchase.
Hmm, but why so good though?
When asked, the owner – let’s just call him Uncle Chicken Rice – said that it has always been his late grandfather’s wish to help the elderly in the community, and therefore he is now doing whatever he can to fulfill his grandfather’s wish.
And running his chicken rice stall at Maxwell Food Centre also allows him to reach out easily to the city’s elderly population too, since there are many elderly living in the Chinatown area.
Besides fulfilling his late grandfather’s wish, Uncle Chicken Rice also wants to give back to the society, in his own way, in support of the Government’s call to honour and thank the Pioneer and Merdeka Generations.
Uncle Chicken Rice said that this offer for the Pioneer and Merdeka generation folks will stand for as long as his chicken rice shop is around.
