This Made My Day: Couple dishes out free lunches and friendship to elderly in Bedok

For the past eight years, a couple has been serving free lunches to old folks at the void deck of an HDB block in Bedok. The meals not only warmed the bellies of their elderly neighbours, it also warmed their hearts.  According to Lianhe Wanbao, the couple s act of kindness has helped an 82-year-old widow go through a difficult time in her life. After her husband died years ago, the woman spent her days alone at home and slipped into depression. She later heard that a couple from a neighbouring block was giving out free lunches to seniors every Monday to Friday, and decided to join them one day. The widow soon befriended fellow seniors, and looked forward to meeting her lunch buddies every day. I ve known them for over five years. It s great to have someone to talk to and care about, she said. THE COUPLE BEHIND THE FREE MEALS The organisers of the free lunches is a man and his wife who live at Blk 23 Chai Chee Road.
