How Your Donation Makes a Difference

About Us

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. With the support of donors, food industry partners, and more than 20,000 volunteers, Food from the Heart made a difference to the lives of more than 59,300 people throughout Singapore by distributing S$7.23 million worth of food in 2022.

To alleviate hunger by providing reliable, consistent and sustainable food support to the less fortunate through food distribution programmes.
