NUS Bizad Charity Run is an annual flagship event which is in its 8th year of running. It aims to rally our community together to raise funds and support financially-challenged NUS Business School undergraduates, as well as caring for the larger community by helping external beneficiaries too. This year, we are collaborating with Food Bank with the intent of raising funds to further support families and individuals who struggle to put food on the table.
While the funds raised from our run will be channelled towards Food Bank, we hope to take advantage of this platform to gain addition support and awareness for our beneficiary. Every donation will count towards a better future for the clients who benefit from this organization. We really hope to aid them in every way possible and we hope you will join us on this mission. Thank you!
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 vision is to be the prevailing centralised coordinating organisation for all food donations and to play a key role in the reduction of food wastage within the whole supply chain.
We now have a total of 150 member beneficiaries that includes:
Family service centres (FSCs)
Various types of homes
Other voluntary welfare organizations (VWOs)
