10 Ways to Help Us Feed The Needy

Published: 8 September 2022, Thursday

Help comes in many forms. While food insecurity is a serious societal issue, we can get creative in tackling it. Help us feed the Needy in your own way:

 

1. Run a Food Drive For Us

Organize a food drive in your company or amongst your community to raise food to donate to Food from the Heart. Find out what food is on our wish list and how to Donate Right!

2. Cash Contribution

Programmes like the School Goodie Bag and Project Belanja! are fully funded by cash. Cash donations also enable us to give better by running initiatives like Farms to Families, fund the purchase of assets like delivery trucks and technology upgrades to improve efficiency. Through these, we create more value for your donated dollars and our beneficiaries in the long run.

As an IPC-status charity, cash donations of $50 and above are eligible for 250% tax deduction.

3. Organize a Fundraising Campaign

We welcome self-initiated projects like creating a fundraising campaign for us on Giving.sg to commemorate a birthday or through a bake sale. Did you know about the Project 2166 fundraiser which raised $2,353 in 10 days?

 

4. Donate Surplus Food

Join us as a bakery partner to donate unsold bread regularly or donate seasonal items like mooncakes, rice dumplings or festive treats, which you might have in excess.

5. In-kind Donations

Sponsoring food, prizes and services for our events makes a big difference in our operational cost. We're also grateful to most of our vendors who offer their products and services to us at a friendly, charity rate!

6. Volunteer Time, Energy and Skills

Sign up as a volunteer with us and show up to help us with delivery, food sorting and packing, or as a campaign ambassador at our events. 

Contribute in your area of expertise, be it photography/videography, graphic/multi-media design, administrative work or hosting an event or creating an app.

7. Long-term Mindset

19 year running, we're focused on our mission to alleviate hunger by providing reliable, consistent and sustainable food support to the less-fortunate through food distribution programmes. We're in it for the long haul and hope that you're as committed as we are.

8. Share Moments

Share photos of your work with us, be it - on a bread run, donating food, checking out our Community Shops, delivering food packs to beneficiaries or finishing your food to fulfil your Clean Plate pledge. Tell your friends, co-workers and family about our food drives!

Don't forget to tag us on Facebook and Instagram, we'd like to see them! We'd also love to hear your thoughts about us. Leave us a google review on your experience.
