As a form of support for the government's recommendations in overcoming the Covid-19 pandemic in Indonesia in the form of #DirumahAja (#StayAtHome). This program aims to educate marginal communities about the importance of this appeal to reduce the chain of spread of the corona virus.
FoodCycle Indonesia initiated a campaign named #NasiTelorCeplok (#SunnySideUpRice).
Starting from the people's unrest that led to panic buying, so many food prices & necessities of life to soar, Edward Suhadi made a video about "Sunny Side Up on Rice". In his video he encourages the audience to not do panic buying, because daily calorie required by a human can actually be fulfilled simply by consuming "Sunny Side Up on Rice".
Sounds simple, however, with the existence of panic buying, and the suggestion to #DiRumahAja makes many people facing difficulties from economic aspects, such as hawkers, online motorcycle taxi drivers, and not a few employees who were laid off by their employers.
Together with Zomato, who conducted the #MakanDiRumah (#EatAtHome) campaign, FoodCycle Indonesia aims to help those who are facing difficulties with this condition, by still being able to #DiRumahAja to #MakanDiRumah with #NasiTelorCeplok
