Let’s be real, money has always been a concern for most people. Especially after the pandemic and local natural disasters, many people have been attempting to budget better and tighten their belts. Well, a month ago, the government launched an initiative to help with that.
Early February, the Menu Rahmah program was introduced. According to the initiative, local restaurants and food stalls operators would voluntarily provide well-balanced, daily meals (either lunch or dinner) which should not exceed RM5.00 per meal. Plenty of F&B owners have since joined the initiative, including these five fast food restaurants!
