According to @piqalee, she has noticed several other Petron stations in her area practising the same initiative. One user replied to her tweet saying he has seen one Petron station in Seremban having a free food bank as well.

To assist communities in coping with the financial effects of Covid-19, Petron Malaysia has established the "Jom Bantu Food Bank and Community Table" programme, back in 2020 when the pandemic first hit.
It's so nice to see they're still running the programme almost three years later!
