We at FBSG understand that it can be difficult to find pockets of time to donate your time, but another way you can contribute to our fight against food poverty in Singapore is through Food Donations. And this year, we have an Amazon Wishlist with all the warehouse needs.

#3 – Hold a Fund Drive for FBSG

Did you know that 1 in 10 Singapore households are food insecure? Fund Drives are an important and impactful way everyday Singaporeans can join the fight against hunger.

An alternative to food drives is hosting a FUND Drive. Thanks to our various industry partnerships, we are able to negotiate better prices and buy MORE food using your monetary donations.

How do you do this?

  • Set up a Fundraiser on Giving.sg and share it with your friends and family! 
  • Alternatively, you can start a fundraiser for Our Food Bank Cards that will receive 1:1 matching by the Tote Board.
  • If you wish to start a corporate donation campaign, please email enquiries@foodbank.sg for information on getting started.

#4 – Host a Food Drive for FBSG

Food drives are a great way to involve your friends and family in the fight to end food insecurity and do something meaningful together in the process. 

How do you do this?

  1. Collect donations for two weeks. Food drives can last however long you’d like, but most food banks recommend running your drive for at most two weeks.
  2. Focus on the most wanted items: Here is the list of the most needed items in our warehouse. Refer to our social media for updates on our latest updates. 
  3. Drop-off your donations: There are two ways to go about this. If you have below 5 kg of food, you can drop them off at our Bank Boxes islandwide. Otherwise, please arrange to drop them off at FBSG’s warehouse by contacting enquiries@foodbank.sg

More than 150 organisations providing food aid are listed

Singapore – November 22, 2022 – The Food Bank Singapore (FBSG) today launched The Feeding Directory (FindFoodSupport.sg) to help those looking for food support near them.

More than 150 of FBSG’s feeding partners located across Singapore are listed in the directory.

Food aid is not new to Singapore with many groups providing assistance to the hungry since the nation’s independence. However, according to The Hunger Report Part II released in March, only 22 percent of those identified as food insecure households are receiving assistance.

“To achieve our goal of ending food insecurity in the next few years, FBSG feels that it is vital to find a way to let those in need know where the aid is,” said Nichol Ng, Co-founder of FBSG.

The Feeding Directory connects social workers, food insecure households and anyone in search of food support to organisations that provide food aid such as cooked meals, food vouchers, food rations, and even daily essentials from FBSG’s The Food Pantry vending machines.

Created after extensive groundwork, the website lets people search for food support by type of help needed, location of the nearest support organisations, and food and beverage (F&B) outlets that are part of FBSG’s Bank Card programme.

“The Feeding Directory is not just for populating locations of non-governmental organisations within our network, but also aims to become a national feeding directory where all organisations with a feeding programme will be listed. We are asking charities and the public to inform us if they know of more food programmes in Singapore. In isolation, we can do little but as a collective, we can move the needle for those facing hunger issues,” said Ng.

About The Food Bank Singapore Ltd
Established in 2012, The Food Bank Singapore (www.foodbank.sg) is Singapore’s first food bank and aims to be the prevailing centralised coordinating organisation for all food donations in Singapore. Driven by its mission to eradicate food insecurity of all forms in Singapore by 2025, the registered charity bridges potential donors and member beneficiaries by collecting and redistributing donated food. Its members are registered charity organisations or special organisations with a designated meal programme for low income and underprivileged individuals and families. Through a network of more than 300 such organisations of all sizes, the food bank serves more than 100,000 families and over 300,000 people with all kinds of food – from fresh to cooked.
