4 Creative Ways To Support Local Food Bank | EasyStore

Given the extended MCO enforcement, more and more Malaysians are getting hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Over the past weeks, there was a White Flag Movement or #benderaputih bringing ripples across social media in Malaysia, and yes, more distressed individuals and families have started waving white flags outside their houses as a sign to ask for help.

We know it's tough to help others during the coronavirus pandemic. Fortunately, there are some ways you can do right now without making you leave the house. And somehow, most of them won't cost you any money.

Ways That You Can Do To Support Local FoodBank

1. Make some noise on social media

Use a couple of the minutes you spend on social media today to grab support for this movement from your followers or customers. Share them using #BenderaPutih / #RakyatJagaRakyat, and get more of them to do the same.

2. Share a "food bank map"

Chances are, your local food bank will show what they need and where they are. Volunteer your time to prepare a food bank list around your place and share it out with your audience on your online store or social media. Believe me, it will definitely help out those in need.
