TAIPEI--Hon Hai Group said Saturday it will donate 30 metric tons of rice on Monday to 183 charity foundations and elderly people who live alone.
The rice is expected to be sent to these organizations and some 3,533 senior citizens across the country, according to Hon Hai.
It is hoped that the recipients could celebrate the new year with healthy food after a series of food scares shattered public confidence in food safety, the company said.
In its second year, the campaign will use rice grown jointly by local farmers and Hon Hai employees in eastern Taiwan's Hualien County and central Taiwan's Taichung City, the company said.
