Food Bank Singapore

2021 Let’s put more thoughts to the Food Waste  & Food Insecurity problem this year!

Food Bank Singapore and Food Bank Singapore Ambassador Spoonful will hold an online workshop on Singapore’s Food Waste issues and Food Insecurity.

 

What is Food Bank Singapore?

An NPO that works primarily on the promotion of food waste and food insecurity awareness in Singapore.

[Fun Food Disposal Quiz]
1. What percentage of the population is unable to eat satisfactorily in Singapore?

① 1%  ② 5%  ③ 10%

(The answer is ③)

 

At first glance, Singapore looks affluent, but households with household incomes of less than $ 1,500 make up 15% of the total population, and 10% of the total do not eat well. It is by no means free from poverty.

On the other hand, food waste in Singapore is 70,000 tons per year (by the way, 1.3 billion tons in the world as a whole), which means that each person throws away about two bowls of rice every day.

The capacity of 1500 Olympic-sized pools is filled with food waste each year.

 

So what can we do about this problem?

Why don’t you think about it together with our children?

 

* This class is conducted by Food Bank Singapore, in the English language.

* There is no age limit, but it is recommended for Primary school children!

* The fee is $ 5 per family, and the participation fee will be donated to Food Bank Singapore, through Spoonful.
