Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Sep 2020, 11:59 PM

More than 105,000 families live in poverty, which is about one in 10 family homes, or 378,000 people. I have seen many people struggle to even afford basic food and daily needs, as I participated in more community service projects.

Together with my friends, we started The BFG Project, which stands for: Bake For Good. We hope that our madeleine sparks joy, not only in our consumers but for the beneficiaries as well. By simply purchasing madeleines, we could potentially have one less hungry person, or even better, one less hungry family.

I hope that others do recognise the poverty Singapore faces, despite our global reputation of being a fine city and having beautiful buildings.

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
