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. Our volunteers have since multiplied to over 10,000, and together we reached 59,500 beneficiaries across Singapore in 2021.

*Henry Laimer sadly passed away on June 1st, 2022, in Austria. More details here.

[When our children play with toys, their imagination is spurred and their days enlivened. No child should be left behind in any aspect of such holistic development. I am therefore heartened that every year with their Toy Buffet, FFTH is working with a wide network of schools and other Social Service Organisations to spread a message of hope and love to children across Singapore.]
