Who We Are

Independent Non-Profit Organisation
Singapore Food Charity
Est. 2003


To be the leading charity in Singapore devoted to alleviating hunger through efficient distribution of food.



To reach out to the less-fortunate and brighten their lives by alleviating hunger through a food distribution programme and bringing joy through the distribution of toys and birthday celebrations.

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 2018, our volunteers multiplied to reach a count of 1,700, and together we reach 40,300 beneficiaries across Singapore.

[As a cook, it's very hard if there's not enough oil or sauce or sugar. But because of Food from the Heart, I don't need to worry. Every time I go down (to collect food items), they say, "What you need, you take." This is really the best thing.]
