Our Values

As we work towards our mission, we embrace the values of professionalism, efficiency, transparency and self-sustainability.


Food from the Heart is a non-profit organisation that feeds the needy through its food distribution programme. It was established in February 2003 after Singapore-based Austrian couple Henry and Christine Laimer read a report in The Sunday Times about bakeries discarding their unsold bread. Stirred, they then decided to channel surplus food from bakeries to those in need.

Food from the Heart started with 120 volunteers in 2003. As at the end of 2020, our volunteers multiplied to over 10,000, and together we reached 53,700 beneficiaries across Singapore.

[Throughout my time volunteering with Food from the Heart, the passion and support from the team has continued to be remarkable. Orientation and volunteer engagement sessions have been run well. Being part of an organisation that does so much good in the community brings great personal satisfaction, and seeing how well it looks out for volunteers as well as beneficiaries has made me committed to continue volunteering for far longer than I ever expected. ]
