Our Campaign Story

ends 07 Oct 2020, 11:59 PM

Did you know that c.10% of Singaporean households experienced food insecurity in the past 12 months? I didn't, because I live in a "bubble within a bubble". So I want to raise awareness of this, in a country where there is no poverty line (and no minimum wage). According to Singaporeans Against Poverty, a 2013 campaign, 400,000 people in Singapore live off $5 a day after housing and utilities etc. We all know COVID-19 would have made things worse for these people, so let's do something about it!
I will use giving.sg to help raise funds for Food Bank Singapore, who help exactly these sorts of people, and I will use this campaign to help raise awareness of this whole situation. If they can live off $5 a day, I can do so for 14 days, and if I can do it, so can you (or at least donate and help spread the word)!
Thanks!
(I will put some updates and stories on Facebook, if we're not friends already please feel free to add me, and thank you all for your support)

About The Charity

The Food Bank Singapore acquires donated food from farms, manufacturers, distributors, retail stores, consumers, and other sources, and makes it available to those in need through a network of member beneficiaries.

The Food Bank Singapore was set up by Nichol and Nicholas Ng, a pair of siblings running a food distribution business, FoodXervices Inc Pte Ltd. After observing the food industry for more than a decade, they realised the need for a food bank in Singapore. Founded in 2012, we were given charity status in 2012 and IPC status in 2015.

Our mission is TO END FOOD INSECURITY IN ALL FORMS in Singapore.

We now have a total of 360 member beneficiaries that includes:
Family Service Centres (FSCs)
Senior Activity Centres (SACs)
Various types of homes (Nursing Homes, Children's Homes, Halfway houses)
Soup kitchens
Other voluntary welfare organizations (VWOs) and registered charities
