The ‘DBS 5 Million Hawker Meals’ initiative is the latest in a series of initiatives by DBS/POSB to support the community’s needs.

Last November, the DBS Foundation announced that it will contribute SGD 500,000, which totals up to SGD 1 million with the government’s dollar-for-dollar matching, to the DfL fund to support digital inclusion projects and step up its volunteer participation to drive digital literacy training. The effort aims to reach out to some 100,000 Singaporeans by end 2024, including senior citizens, youths, hawkers, and special needs individuals.

The bank also launched the DBS Adopt-A-Hawker Centre initiative in 2021 with the aim of safeguarding hawkers’ livelihoods amid the pandemic. The bank worked with IMDA to rally community partners and various grassroot leaders to:

  • help sustain these businesses by organising group buys
  • boosting discoverability via social media and other platforms including DBS PayLah!
  • equipping hawkers with the tools and know-how to digitalise their business

To date, stallholders from ten hawker centres island-wide have benefited from this initiative.
