After a party or festive season, it's not uncommon to find ourselves with an abundance of leftover food. Instead of letting it go to waste, why not consider donating it to those in need?
Food Bank Singapore offers a convenient and meaningful way to redistribute excess non-perishable food items through their network of donation boxes scattered across the island.
With over 80 donation boxes adopted by schools, corporate offices, shopping malls, and condominiums, Food Bank Singapore makes it easy for the public to contribute to their mission of fighting food insecurity in the community. These donation boxes serve as collection points for unopened, unexpired dry and packaged food items with at least 4 weeks to expiry.
By donating your excess food to Food Bank Singapore, you not only prevent it from going to waste but also help provide much-needed nourishment to individuals and families facing hunger. Your contributions can make a tangible difference in the lives of those struggling to put food on the table.
It's important to note that Food Bank Singapore only accepts non-perishable food items that are unopened, unexpired, and in good condition. Fresh food, half-eaten items, opened packages, and expired goods are not suitable for donation, as they risk contaminating other donations and compromising food safety standards.

Together, let's make a positive impact by sharing our blessings and supporting those in need through the simple yet impactful act of donating excess food to Food Bank Singapore. Every donation, no matter how small, has the power to make a difference in the fight against hunger and food insecurity.
