The Food Bank Singapore is recruiting Junior Foodbankers aged 5 to 12 to encourage volunteerism from young! Ad-hoc volunteering opportunities and activities are held every quarter during the school holidays for children aged 5 to 12 years old.
The kids will have a tour of Food Bank’s warehouse and assist in sorting, packing or taking inventory of the donations. Through this activity, the kids will get to learn more on identifying food categories, expiry labels and how our warehouse operates.
Food Distribution through our Joy In Every Bundle programme
The kids will assist in packing individual food bundles and distributing them to the individual beneficiaries at their homes. Through this activity, the kids will get to learn more about our beneficiary organisations and experience distributing food to those in need and their living conditions.
Excursions / External Collaboration
The kids will get the chance to visit local farms and food production/wastage factories or participate in a Cooking class. Through these trips, the kids will have a better understanding on how food is being produced and increase in the appreciation of the foods that they consume.
