11 (Halal) Giving Dishes to eat and help improve literacy levels of underprivileged children this #GivingWeekSG

by Halalfoodhunt Nov 25, 2017

Last year, Halalfoodhunt, along with nine of our halalfoodhunt.com listed merchants, participated in Giving Week in 2016 via a Giving Dish campaign. In total, 1400 Giving Dishes were sold along with 234 FRIENDS with halalfoodhunt.com Rewards Card. In total, $2,066.70 was raised.

This year, Halalfoodhunt would like to do the same with our merchants. This 28 November to 5 December 2017, halalfoodhunt.com is participating in #GivingWeek where 11 merchants listed on halalfoodhunt.com will be submitting 40-80% of proceeds of the dish to charity. Giving Week is a national movement that encourages everyone to give back.




Proceeds from the dishes will go to Literacy Initiative for Equity (LIFE). LIFE is a  voluntary, and non-profit organisation reaching out to pockets of society that established organisations may have missed out. LIFE aims to support underprivileged children by equipping them with tools and a fair opportunity at achieving success.

Joining our merchants in this initiative, halalfoodhunt.com will be providing a complimentary video coverage for our merchants of the dish and the restaurant. If you need to collect more rewards or karma points on this Earth, or just want to restore your faith in humanity, choose to eat at these places (they're all permissible for Muslims to eat at).


Digitising the "Coupon Amal" concept

Based on feedback from last year’s campaign, Halalfoodhunt will be taking the concept of ‘Coupon Amal’ which is familiar to the Malay community and digitise this concept, making Giving easier. 

Head to Givingdish.Halalfoodhunt.com to browse through the dishes and purchase dishes during Giving Week itself from 28 November to 5 December 2017. Halalfoodhunt will then send the vouchers to the the Givers on 5 December onwards for Givers to bring to the restaurants and claim their Giving Dish by 28 February 2018.

Since the end of the year is the time for family and friends to come together why not buy one dish, support a good cause, and treat you fambam (that's your family and friends).

halalfoodhunt.com is a website listing verified Muslim-owned or Halal Certified food businesses. We started out educating halal foodies on how to know if a food is halal or not when there are no halal certifications. As we received so many enquiries on whether a food business is halal or not, we created halalfoodhunt.com, while letting halal foodies know about the myriad of options open to them! It is a website created and self-funded by local Singaporean Muslims for the Singaporean Muslim community.
