Christmas is a time for cherished family and friends, and the season of giving. Here are 4 ways you can help FBSG fight food insecurity in Singapore, and ensure everyone has a happy Christmas.

#1 – Give a Gift that Matters

Struggling to find the perfect gift for a loved one, friend or family member? Why not pledge a donation to FBSG in their name, and double the holiday love from you to your loved ones and another family served through your donation.

  • $50 – Supports a person for 15 days, through the Bank Card Programme
  • $100 – Supports a person for 30 days, through the Bank Card Programme
  • $200 – Supports a person for 60 days, through the Bank Card Programme 
  • Custom amount – any contribution will help towards ending food insecurity 

How do you do this? 

  • The Food Bank Singapore is an approved Institution of a Public Character (IPC). All donations made to FBSG are entitled to 2.5x tax deductions in Singapore. * Only eligible for all residents of Singapore. 
  • From your donation, your recipient will receive an e-card through an email address you’ve provided us with, personalized with your Name. 
  • This e-card service will be open until December 18th 2022 and will be sent to your recipient the week before Christmas. 
  • If you’d like the tax deduction to go to your recipient, in the ‘Tax Deduction Details NRIC/FIN Number’ field, simply enter their name and NRIC number instead.
    *Please remember to get their consent prior to entering their details. 
  • In the ‘Remarks’ field, please indicate “Christmas Donation” and include your recipients name and email address and your name and email address.

#2 – Shop for the Food Bank Singapore on Amazon!

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

Image5-FoodDrive

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

The Food Bank Singapore launches directory of food support

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.

During the June holidays, we had over 100 Juniors Club members gather from all over Singapore attend our June sessions! We had a fun and engaging “Adventures with Bala and Friends” programme for our children ages 5-9 years old and “Joy in Every Bundle” programme for our 10-16 years old. Our little ones participated in hands-on activities to develop an understanding of food waste and food insecurity.
What is FBSG’s Juniors Club Programme?

FBSG’s Juniors Club Programme builds awareness among the littlest members of our community and involves them in making an impactful, positive social change. Here at The Food Bank Singapore, we believe that it is critical to plant the seed of service and social responsibility starting at a young age. Through a range of experiential learning opportunities and a highly engaging curriculum, our young participants develop an understanding of food insecurity and food wastage in Singapore. This empowers them to take informed, purposeful steps towards ending hunger.

We are very grateful to all the children who attended these sessions and all the parents who supported our event! A big thank you to all the volunteers who led these sessions and not forgetting our very own FBSG team that made this possible.
AND IT’S A WRAP!

2022 has been a year of uncertainty and insecurity.

According to the latest MAS survey, the overall inflation rate for the whole of 2022 is projected to reach 5%. Consequently, food prices have and will inevitably rise. Along with unexpected events such as Malaysia’s halt of chicken exports, panic buying and hoarding, anyone at any moment can be vulnerable to food insecurity, even in an affluent country such as Singapore.

Food insecurity is a real threat and Food banks are vital to supporting families in need before, during and after a crisis. Help FBSG continue our crucial work in service of our community.

Here is how you can help:

To Fund a Beneficiary for 1 Month, SGD$100 is all it takes. (S$3.30 per day, less than a cup of bubble tea)

  • SGD$25 pledges 1 Food Bundle to 1 Beneficiary.
  • SGD$50 funds 1 Food Bank Card to 1 Beneficiary for 15 Days.
  • SGD$100 funds 1 Food Bank Card to 1 Beneficiary for 30 Days.

Donate now for a brighter and food secure future in Singapore!

Watch the interview between FBSG’s Co-founder Nichol Ng, Marketing Executive Subaa Subramaniam and Smobler Studio’s Co-founder Dr. Loretta Chen where they talk about why FBSG is venturing into the metaverse to do good and create an inclusive space on web3.

Life in the metaverse translates to doing good in real life

Partake in a meal of Singapore delights, dispense food from the FBSG vending machine or adopt KooriMo herself! This partnership with Smobler Studio will see 50% of the proceeds from asset sales donated to The Food Bank Singapore to create a brighter, food secure future for Singapore!

The full list of assets can be viewed on https://www.cobble.land/ and will be made available for sale on 12th August 2022 on The Sandbox Marketplace.

We are humbled and super ecstatic to share that we have just received a 1-for-1 grant from Singapore’s Tote Board! 

In this grant, for every dollar that is donated, Tote Board will match the amount. 

This means that the impact of every dollar donated to FBSG is now doubled!

How will your contribution help?

The funds we raise in this campaign will support our food aid programmes – Joy in Every Bundle, Food Bank Card and Tap-A-Meal.

With rising food prices and inflations driving core consumer prices, it has become more challenging and costly to provide food aid. What’s more, in these uncertain times, anyone and any family is susceptible to food insecurity.

Donate to the campaign on https://s.giving.sg/cpC5ja9 now and make your donations go twice as far! Fund our mission to build a brighter, food secure future!

The Food Bank Singapore to go phygital with crypto and metaverse

To accept cryptocurrency donations, appoint phygital ambassador and launch NFTs

The Food Bank Singapore (FBSG) will be going phygital (a combination of physical and digital) and entering the realm of the metaverse.

On April 21, it will mark its metaverse debut with the auction of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to raise funds to support 10,000 beneficiaries in Singapore with food and essential items for one year.

The honorary art NFTs will feature FBSG’s mascot KooriMo and include a unique utility to benefit and honour the successful bidder. The three sets are drawn by an artist from Smobler Studios, which will be appointed as FBSG’s metaverse partner.

Smobler Studios is a leading metaverse architect that owns Cobbleland in Sandbox, currently the biggest metaverse. Plans are underway to build KooriLand by FBSG along with assets that can be sold in the metaverse to raise funds to support the food bank’s mission of ending food insecurity in Singapore.

“We are piloting this move into the metaverse as a new way of fund raising. It’s an exciting new world that lets us experiment with different concepts and reach out beyond Singapore to a global audience. NFT is a cool and interesting way to use art to spread our messages. From our metaverse experiment, we hope to share lessons learnt with fellow non-government organisations so that they too can consider this space for their fundraising efforts. We also warmly welcome government agencies to work alongside us to make the metaverse a safe and secured mode of donation,” said Nichol Ng, Co-founder of FBSG.

Interested donors can take part in the honorary art NFT auction on OpenSea, which will be held from April 21 to April 24, 2022, 11.59pm.

Crypto donations and phygital ambassador

To align with the new economy and make it more convenient for a new generation of tech savvy donors, FBSG will be accepting cryptocurrency as donations. The innovative move will provide a new source of funds as well as set the pace for other charities to follow suit.

FBSG will also be appointing its first phygital ambassador on the 21st of April. His identity will be revealed at the auction event.

Celebrating a decade of feeding and fighting food insecurity

The move to phygital is part of FBSG’s 10th anniversary celebration, which began with a panel discussion on the findings of The Hunger Report Part II last month. A slew of activities in response to the findings will be held over the next eight months.

These include a S$12 million fund-raising campaign to provide 10,000 Bank Cards for 12 months to those in need. Recipients can use the cards at the targeted 1,000 food and beverage outlets that FBSG is onboarding under its Feed the City initiative. The cards can also be used at more than 60 vending machines dispensing food and daily essentials in Singapore.

FBSG is also creating a National Feeding Directory to make information on food aid more accessible and easily available. The directory hopes to unite all charities and programmes in Singapore on one platform.

“We are very happy at the ripple effect that we have managed to create within the ecosystem over the past decade. While we are still nowhere close to completing our mission of ending food insecurity in Singapore, we have come quite far in creating more awareness,” said Ng.

Feed The City – Tap A Meal

Share on facebook

Changing the way we feed Singapore, we are empowering beneficiaries and restoring dignity through the power of autonomy.

The distribution of food to beneficiaries has traditionally been done through a “one size fits all approach” by predefining food bundles consisting of regular staple and non-perishable items. However, based on the findings from The Hunger Report Part II and conversations with our feeding partners, we have found that such an approach can lead to food wastage as food staples distributed to beneficiaries may not always be suitable for their dietary needs. 

Developed to address the needs and to redefine the way beneficiaries receive food aid in Singapore, this initiative empowers beneficiaries with the ability to select and manage when and what they eat.

How it works

Under the Feed The City Tap A Meal initiative, FBSG partners with F&B establishments to provide meals to beneficiaries of our Feeding Partners using FBSG’s Bank Cards. Beneficiaries only need to tap the Bank Card Readers to make the redemption.

“We learnt that people prefer cooked food, want to choose their own food, and want to eat at their own time. With the lack of feeding programmes that meet such needs, we decided to change the way we feed Singapore.” Nichol Ng, Co-founder of FBSG. 

FBSG’s Bank Card Programme is a smart wallet pre-loaded with credits every month in which beneficiaries can redeem meals of their choice from participating F&B outlets and FBSG’s Food Pantry at any time.

Feed The City Tap A Meal is the 3rd run of the Feed The City initiative that first launched in 2019. 

Locations

Beneficiaries can receive meals and essentials from the following locations:

Feeding the hungry is now just a tap away

Partner us to support 10,000 beneficiaries with monthly food and essentials

Feed The City Tap A Meal relies on fundraisers all year round to provide hot, nutritious meals and essentials to Singaporeans who need it.

$100 per month provides aid for meals and essentials to a beneficiary

Your contribution will help prevent hunger for someone today and end food insecurity in all forms in Singapore.

Sign up as a F&B Partner to the Feed The City Tap A Meal Initiative


The Feed The City Tap A Meal initiative not only provides support to beneficiaries. It provides new revenue streams and support for F&Bs and hawkers that participate as F&B Partners.

Join us in our mission to build a brighter, food secure future for all Singaporeans by eliminating food insecurity in all forms.
