Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Jun 2020, 11:59 PM

Join FMC to raise funds for the Food Bank Singapore's Feed the City Campaign! The Take-away Edition of the campaign is especially meaningful as it aims to help feed needy families as well as to support F&B businesses that have been badly hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. This is done through a win-win arrangement where struggling F&B businesses will prepare meals at special rates for the vulnerable among us.

We are all in the same storm but not all of us are in the same boat. There are people who have lost their livelihoods, families which are struggling, and businesses which are unable to operate. But in all of this, we believe that no one should go hungry.

So why not gift your unused petrol spend or donate part of the cash support you've received from the Singapore government to feed a hungry family today?

Our goal is to fund 4,000 meals and to get us off to a good start, FMC will donate the first 400 meals. Help us spread the word to your friends and family, and together, let's Feed the City! #SGUnited.

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)
