Who are we?
Project Feed-a-Lot is a Citi-YMCA team working with Food From The Heart, which distributes food packages for the less fortunate in Singapore. With COVID-19, they have more benefactors now than ever but see significant dips in their funding. The team seeks to raise funds for them so they can continue the good they’re doing.
Why are we working on this project?
While we complain about getting fat during the circuit breaker, have we spared a thought for the many people around Singapore who are struggling to even get nutritious food?
While we bemoan our inability to buy our favourite food during this period, have we spared a thought for those of whom this happens daily?
Here at Project Feed-A-Lot, we believe that every single one of us deserves nutritious food. We aim to partner with and raise funds for Food-from-the-Heart, to alleviate hunger and bring joy to the less fortunate.
About The Charity
Food from the Heart is a charity founded in February 2003 by Singapore-based Austrian couple Henry and Christine Laimer, who were inspired to channel surplus food from bakeries to families in need after they read an article about bread wastage.
Today, Food from the Heart is Singapore’s foremost independent food charity with IPC status that makes a tangible and meaningful contribution to fighting hunger through bread rations and food packs, and bringing joy through the distribution of toys and birthday celebrations. With the support of donors, food industry partners and more than 10,000 volunteers, Food from the Heart made a difference to the lives of 44,600 people throughout Singapore by distributing S$6.2 million worth of food in 2019.
