Eat X Dignity Café
A Transformational Café That Helps Provide Education For Underprivileged Children
By Hana Maher
If you’re an avid foodie who needs a solid reason to splurge on food and eat like there’s no tomorrow, then you’d be pleased to know that Sentul’s hidden gem is the place for you. Previously known as Project B, Eat x Dignity is a café and creative space that combines dining and dignity – which subsequently give dining a new and more meaningful experience.
This unique eatery was the product of Dignity for Children Foundation, Berjaya Cares Foundation and B.I.G Group coming together to educate and equip underprivileged children with entrepreneurial skills and knowledge in the F&B industry. These skills and knowledge are ultimately essential in enabling the children to make something of themselves once they are out on their own. As a matter of fact, the practical skills – which students of the programme have honed – will help increase their employment opportunities with restaurants once they’ve graduated.
What’s more, the initiative doesn’t end there. Aside from providing the students with work experience, the cafe’s proceeds are used to support Dignity and its advocacy in providing underprivileged children, located in Sentul and Klang Valley, access to education and work opportunities. It goes without saying that the eatery gives dining a different meaning, whilst freeing any foodie of any guilt for splurging on food and foregoing the need to count the calories on each plate.
And speaking of plates, patrons are spoilt with an array of choices, such as Nyonya Laksa (RM10.90); Nasi Lemak (RM16.00); Beef Burger (RM15.90); as well as sweet treats such as Blueberry Muffin (RM3.20) and Brownies (RM3.00). So, if you’re ever in Sentul, why not take a quick stop at Eat x Dignity, Sentul Raya Boulevard to literally gain calories for a good cause.
