In Singapore, a country known as a food paradise, at least 1 in 10 experience food insecurity. Yet, food waste in Singapore continues to grow every day, generating a whopping 788,600 tonnes of food waste every year.
Troubled by these statistics, Nichol Ng co-founded The Food Bank Singapore, creating a centralised food resource management in the country that allows for unwanted or unused food to be given to those in need, rather than going to waste.
Today, The Food Bank Singapore takes the food donations they receive from various retailers and manufacturers, and redistributes them to over 200 beneficiaries, providing safe and nutritious food to many who are hungry.
Geneco is proud to be hosting Bank Boxes at our roadshows. We believe that the simple act of donating your unwanted food items can go a long way in reducing food waste in Singapore while giving much-needed sustenance to the less fortunate.
