HOW WE STARTED

The Food Bank Singapore was set up by Nichol and Nicholas Ng, a pair of siblings running a food distribution business, FoodXervices Inc Pte Ltd. After observing the food industry for more than a decade, they realized the need for a food bank in Singapore.

Founded in January 2012, The Food Bank Singapore visited more than 30 charity organisations and homes to gain better insight into the situation on the ground. We also took the time to understand the operating models of each organisation that provides free meals and dry rations to the needy and less fortunate families and individuals.

We were given charity status in August 2012 (Co. Reg No: 201200654E) and IPC status in May 2015.

We are registered in The Global Foodbanking Network ( https://www.foodbanking.org/ )
