Our co-founder, Nichol Ng shares her insights with 8-Days on food wastage in Singapore and how to stop it.
"Times are hard now. Even middle income people are coming to us for help while they are in between jobs. Some of them are sole breadwinners who have suddenly lost their jobs. We collect food donations from people who either drop them off at our warehouse, or bring them to our bank boxes located in [some] shopping centres or offices.
We tell people that as long as they have food in their home that’s unopened and has not expired, they are more than welcome to donate it to us, instead of buying new stuff from the supermarket to donate. We try to make it sustainable.”
