Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Nov 2020, 11:59 PM

Despite Singapore being a first-world country and the most food secure nation in the world, food insecurity is a reality for an increasing number of people behind closed doors.

With no poverty line and minimum wage in Singapore, we have collaborated with The Lien Centre for Social Innovation of Singapore Management University, to undertake a first-of-its-kind in depth food insecurity research project in 2019.

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
