Pan Pacific Hotels partner with People’s Association

In conjunction with World Food Day, a global day of action against hunger, Pan Pacific Hotels Group has partnered the People’s Association to reach out to more than 1,700 low-income households island-wide with their thoughtful food bundles of locally-grown produce.

As part of the Group’s Eat Well Do Good initiative, a food donation drive was conducted across five Pan Pacific and PARKROYAL hotels for a month from July 15 to August 15, where close to $35,000 was raised to purchase food bundles for a total of 1,722 families this year.

Each food bundle, worth a total of $37.50, has been carefully curated to contain healthy ingredients rarely received by beneficiaries in typical food donation drives. Comprising locally-grown high quality produce such as barramundi fish, green leafy vegetables and eggs, each food bundle is also accompanied by a Japanese saucepan and recipes designed by our culinary team to teach recipients how to whip up a tasty and healthy meal for their families at home.
