About 12,000 primary and secondary school students living in units under the Public Rental Scheme will receive financial aid for buying meals during the circuit breaker period.

The Housing and Development Board’s (HDB) Public Rental Scheme allows eligible low-income families to rent certain flats at a highly subsidised rate.
Flats under this scheme cater to Singapore Citizen (SC) households who have no other housing options and whose total household gross income does not exceed $1,500 per month.

What is the CDC Student Meals Scheme?

The CDC Student Meals Scheme is a joint initiative of five community development councils (CDCs), Grab Singapore, and a philanthropist, Dr. Tahir. The project was launched on 14 April 2020.

This newly introduced scheme aims to:

  • Help these families defray the cost of buying meals while their children are on home-based learning.
  • Help students avoid queues and limit their time spent outdoors during this period.
  • Improve business demand for heartland food merchants.

How can students avail of the scheme?

Eligible students can sign up for the scheme via e-mail to their respective CDCs. Each eligible student will receive 11 e-vouchers worth $5 each to order and pick up hot meals via the GrabFood app from participating merchants that offer a self pick-up option.
The vouchers must be used by 31 May 2020 this year.
