Nabindran Borah, 24, Sanjay Jayashankar, 28 and Duncan Nages Scully, 21 are the victims of the economic downturn. Previously, they were working at a restaurant called The Spice Kitchen. Due to the cut of payroll and manpower, the trio took a leap of faith and opened a food stall called Quarantine Home Food at Sungai Pinang Food Court.

“Many aren’t able to afford full meals, let alone pay for additional delivery charges when ordering online. That’s why the price of our food is one of the cheapest in Penang. Delivery is even free for customers who live within a 10km radius,” said Sanjay.

Here, meals go from as low as RM4.50 for a generous portion and discount is capped at RM6. Despite their age, the trio does have some solid cooking skills.

Unlike many other food ventures, Quarantine Home Food never serve leftover foods. Instead, they will always cook extra and all the leftovers are packed neatly and every day after work, they would distribute them to the homeless and hungry.

However, before they embark on the journey to distribute the free meals, they will offer prayer, just like how they would when they begin their day.

“These prayers are performed as a sign of respect for the food, for our guests, the kitchen and all that we’re involved with,” Sanjay explains.
