Chongqing- Chongqing, a mega city of 32 million people, is facing “unprecedented difficulty” curbing the virus as three-fourths of new COVID cases have been spread by community transmission. Facing temporary lockdowns in communities, what if residents had difficulty going out to buy food? A hot pot restaurant owner in Dadukou District responded that they should deliver vegetables for free.

“If it is not convenient to buy vegetables, please let me know, and I am happy to provide fresh vegetables for free,” said Huang Shaogao, owner of a hot pot restaurant called Huang Shijiang. “I would like to contribute my power to support the surrounding neighbors who need help under the pandemic.”

By actively collecting the needs of residents through the WeChat group and organizing the number of residents who need fresh vegetables in the community, Huang has sent free vegetable packages every day since the beginning of the COVID outbreak this November.

Thanks to returning customers nearby the community, Huang has opened the hot pot restaurant for over six years with a stable business. He understands that helping his community is an opportunity for him to grow as a person; giving back to the place helps to unite the community and bridge some of the social and economic gaps.

“It really feels like a light, which makes people feel warm,” said Ms. Qu, a resident who lives in Building 1 of the community nearby.

“I hope to help people in need through practical actions, enhancing their confidence and determination to overcome the difficulties together,” said Huang. He said he would continue to deliver vegetables as long as the community needed them.
