Twitter user shameeraidlyn shared that he bought food from a non-halal cai png stall for a hungry old man. He captioned his video “buying food from non halal store sometimes is not what u guys (think)”. He said that some people judged him for buying the food, some of which is pork.


His tweet has gone viral with over 1,700 retweets, several Twitter users commending shameeraidlyn for his kind deed. The tweet shows that there is truth to the study from Food From The heart (FFTH).

The publication said that the study further suggested that poor families and elderly couples past the working age find themselves most vulnerable to food insecurity, and that they are only able to afford low-cost, low-nutrition food, they skip meals, or, sometimes, don’t get to eat at all.
