Old-age care security has always been one of the important topics of social concern. To this question, Shitan Village in Longwan has given a beautiful answer.


Cai Guangnian is a retired school headmaster. After retirement, in 2017, with the support of the government and warm-hearted individuals, he founded a special canteen serving the elderly in Shitan Village. It serves a two-yuan lunch five days a week. Under the careful management of Mr. Cai and more than 100 volunteers, the elderly in Shitan Village affectionately call it "Happy Canteen".


The male and female volunteers in this canteen have their own different work. The male volunteers get up early in the morning to buy food materials, while the female volunteers are in charge of the cooking and food distribution. "We're a team of people over 60 years old, and we're happy that we can still make contributions to local people." They said.


From 2018 to 2023, the Happy Canteen has persisted for five years. Their perseverance and selflessness radiate more human warmth in the cold winter. May the "Happy Canteen" bring more happiness to the elderly.
