SINGAPORE – The number of COVID patients in the hospital here has fallen dramatically in recent weeks, but the warriors in the healthcare industry push on relentlessly caring for these patients. USA Rice continues to show support for the community by helping to feed front line health workers during this pandemic.
USA Rice is back for the second round of the World Gourmet Summit Unsung Heroes Initiative to show its appreciation this time to the healthcare heroes of Tan Tock Seng Hospital Singapore and the National Centre for Infectious Diseases. USA Rice is working with U.S. rice importers to provide the rice to 19 partner restaurants that are preparing bento meals using U.S. rice. This initiative began on June 22nd and will cater more than 1,600 meals by the time the program concludes on June 30th.
“This is a great opportunity to not only show support for these vital health care workers in some small way, but also for more restaurants to experience the versatility of U.S. rice in different cuisines,” explained Jim Guinn, USA Rice director of Asia promotion programs. “We are happy to see many interesting new dishes and hope that the restaurants enjoy working with U.S. rice. In addition, there will be opportunities to promote U.S. rice participation in this activity to the general public.”
