Our Campaign Story

ends 21 Nov 2021, 11:59 PM

We are a group of passionate and loving individuals embarking on a service-learning project and our project's vision is to raise awareness, as well as funds for Food Bank Singapore to address the food shortage issue due to COVID19.

This project is carried out in collaboration with Food Bank Singapore. Food Bank Singapore was founded in 2012 and it operates as a food bank that collects donated food from farms, manufacturers, distributors, retail stores, consumers, and other sources. They re-distribute them to organisations such as old folks' homes, family service centers, and soup kitchens to end all food insecurities in Singapore.

Food charities across Singapore are experiencing huge shortages as a result of food hoarding and panic buying islandwide. On top of that, food donations have decreased drastically since the start of COVID19. As businesses in Singapore endure the reduction in sales, many families would have to face lower-income and even unemployment. This tightens the already difficult situation of low-income families and hence food charities are increasingly important in this crucial time.

We believe that we should all do our part as fellow citizens to reach out and support others in our community that are in need of aid. Hence we appeal to all of you to generously contribute to this cause :)

Our mission is to eradicate food insecurity of all forms in Singapore by 2025, by bridging potential donors and member beneficiaries through collection and redistribution of donated food.
We serve registered charity organisations or societies with a designated meal programme for low income and underprivileged individuals and families. Through a network of more than 370 such organisations of all sizes, we impact more than 100,000 families and over 300,000 people with all kinds of food; from fresh to cooked.

Our 370 member beneficiaries that include:
