GoGoVan Project: Donate Excess Chinese New Year Goodies to The Food Bank Singapore

Established in 2012, The Food Bank Singapore is Singapore’s first food bank and aims to be the prevailing centralised coordinating organisation for all food donations in Singapore. Its mission is to bridge potential donors and members (beneficiaries). It complements charities’ food donation efforts by helping them to obtain better access to excess food. The food bank is also looking at finding creative and alternative ways to maximise use of excess food. Besides collecting, storing and distributing donated food, The Food Bank Singapore aspires to be the voice of food resource planning and management, and spread the word on its importance to ensure long term providence of food for everyone.

We shared about joining The Food Bank Juniors Club previously in which Junior Foodbankers (ages 5 to 12) will get the opportunity to volunteer at the warehouse, host food drives, help out with creation of appreciation cards, go on excursions to local farms and food production/wastage facilities, and be an ambassador of food wastage and hunger issues in Singapore. This is an invaluable learning experience for the little ones.

Now, many of us have received our bonuses, went for Chinese New Year shopping and stock up many goodies at home. All ready to usher in the Year of Monkey and preparing for celebrations. As we celebrate, remember that there are some people in our community who are not as fortunate as us. If you have any excess Chinese New Year goodies and wondering where to discard them, why not donate them instead?
