Ep27: The Politics of Soup Kitchens

Malaysians might remember a time back in 2014-15, when soup kitchens were the talk of the town. Politicians debated over them, newspaper headlines sensationalised them, and they were sure to come up over mamak stall conversations. Even though the talk on soup kitchens have mostly died down since, many of them still operate in our cities, Kuala Lumpur especially, providing food and services for the poor and underprivileged. Joycelyn Lee and Andrea Tan, founders of one such soup kitchen—Pit Stop Community Cafe—sit with us to discuss their motivations behind running Pit Stop, touch on the politics of food, and talk about how we can invest in our community.
