Rueven Chia, 10, is frugal, says his mother Tan Mui Kim, but used RM500 of his pocket money for the 7-day Loving Lunchbox Project to cook meals for families in need, while his sister Dionne, 6, helped write messages for each lunchbox. – The Malaysian Insight pic, August 8, 2021.

TEN-YEAR-OLD old Rueven Chia went on a seven-day cooking spree to prepare 140 lunchboxes for those who have fallen on hard times in Johor Jaya, Johor during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Called the 7-day Loving Lunchbox Project, Rueven took it upon himself to prepare 20 lunchboxes a day to be distributed to families in need with the help of local councillors. His project ran from July 22 till July 29.
