Against to taking care of the elders, they set up a canteen and invited the elders in the community to dine together at noon every day. After the meal, they also held a networking activity at the Yuan Chang Second Old People Activity Center, so that some elders living alone could get care of their lives.

This shows that people got full of expectations for the canteen. Due to the huge amount of joiners the canteen will be officially opened in October and will continue to be maintained.
