Our Campaign Story

ends 09 Aug 2020, 11:59 PM

Singapore is known as a food paradise, with many of our social and cultural norms built around our love of food. Can our food paradise be paradise for everyone? Whether you are grocery shopping at the supermarkets or ordering food delivery online - can these everyday acts support others in need?

In the first edition, Eat for Good X Feed the City will bring together F&B businesses to offer pay-it-forward meals to vulnerable groups in the community. Whether you are an individual or representing an organisation, you are invited to buy these meals. Your contribution will go to the F&B businesses - and in return, they will prepare a meal for someone who needs it.

We are also excited to have TripAdvisor as a partner, supporting the initiative as part of #LoveYourLocal, an advocacy campaign which aims to support and promote local restaurants affected by COVID-19. You may visit their campaign microsite at https://www.tripadvisor.com.sg/LoveYourLocalSG

About Campaign

The coronavirus outbreak has affected many, including local F&B businesses who have experienced a plunge in footfall. Survival is especially challenging during this time, and the livelihoods of workers in this sector have been affected with many experiencing a loss of income. At the same time, there are people amongst us who are in need of meals due to the disruptions that COVID-19 brought.

The Food Bank Singapore is committed to take on the crucial role during such uncertain times to continuously provide food to vulnerable communities and remain fully operational to ensure no one gets left behind. Through Feed the City (Take-Away Edition), we also hope to give F&B retailers that are badly hit a fighting chance of surviving COVID-19.

Feed the City also partners Eat for Good, a collaborative initiative by NVPC's Company of Good that aims to bring stakeholders in the food and dining space together to make doing good a part of daily encounters. (https://www.companyofgood.sg/story/276)

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
