"Our public kitchen cooks 400 meals per day that will then be distributed to people of the low income group, such as angkot (public transport) drivers at the Depok Integrated Station and online ojek- motorcycle taxi drivers at Kartini Street," Denny Romulo, the city firefighter agency's official, remarked on Thursday.
This program aims to assist people bearing the maximum brunt of the COVID-19 pandemic owing to the application of PSBB, Romulo noted, adding that the soup kitchen is open for logistics donation.
