Our Campaign Story

ends 11 May 2022, 11:59 PM

I am a recent graduate of Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) and wanted to do something to the less fortunate, especially during the tough times of a raging pandemic. Hence, I decided to start this project together with my younger sister, Chew Myn. Not only has the pandemic caused everyone great stress and uncertainty, underprivileged households are finding it even harder to put food on the table.

Just like Jackie in the video, many people have faced increased job insecurity or have even lost their jobs, making it difficult for them to feed their families. I want to help alleviate this problem by raising funds to support Food from the Heart's efforts in providing reliable and sustainable food packages to the less fortunate. Additionally, Hope Food will also be selling merchandise and collaborating with other organisations to raise awareness on this issue and to help hit the target amount we aim to raise.

Hope Food is also collaborating with home based businesses and brands to raise funds for this initiative.

About The Charity

Food from the Heart is a charity founded in February 2003 by Singapore-based Austrian couple Henry and Christine Laimer, who were inspired to channel surplus food from bakeries to families in need after they read an article about bread wastage.

Today, Food from the Heart is Singapore's foremost independent food charity with IPC status that makes a tangible and meaningful contribution to fighting hunger through bread rations and food packs. With the support of donors, food industry partners and more than 10,000 volunteers, Food from the Heart made a difference to the lives of 53,700 people throughout Singapore by distributing S$6.35 million worth of food in 2020.

Mission
To alleviate hunger by providing reliable, consistent and sustainable food support to the less-fortunate through food distribution programmes.
