About Campaign

Food from the Heart (FFTH) started the School Goodie Bag Programme 14 years ago with the belief that no child should ever have to go to school on an empty stomach. Working with various schools around Singapore, FFTH supplies monthly non-perishable food items to families of school children under the Financial Assistance Scheme (FAS). These food packs help defray living expenses by supplementing basic food necessities as rice, milk, eggs and cooking oil. All it takes to support a student and their family is $55 for a month, or $660 for a year; just $1.81 per day.

Singapore Home Cooks, a popular Facebook Group with more than 170,000 passionate home cooks as members, hope to help FFTH fundraise $33,000 to support 50 students under the School Goodie Bag Programme for a year. By helping these students from needy families meet their basic needs, they can begin to focus on learning and receive a high quality education. When you get involved with the School Goodie Bag Programme, you help young men and women get the knowledge they need to avoid poverty in adulthood.

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, and bringing joy through the distribution of toys and birthday celebrations. 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 40,300 people throughout Singapore by distributing S$5.9 million worth of food in 2018.
