Although Singapore is one of the wealthiest nations in the world—like every other country—it still has an abundance of poor citizens; the Singaporean government simply does a better job hiding such individuals on the outskirts of the city.
In Singapore, by distributing food to the poorest families every single week, our members are able to create a unique bond between with the needy that builds upon itself as every week passes. Our members are able to visit the homes of the people they are helping and have a genuine conversation with them. Our members become culturally aware students through exposure to the local difficulties of their neighbors.
The experience Food From The Heart provides for its members is a little different from other clubs. This is because FFTH highlights weekly involvement with the beneficiaries through food distribution, food packaging, and toy drives. The foundation of our club lies on the belief that regular participation with the beneficiaries is the only way to be a true service club.
Every week our members visit the FFTH warehouses to help either pack or distribute food to the needy. This is where we make a difference. At the warehouses, if we aren’t packing up to 50-100 bags of rice for distribution, we are helping to pack other kitchen essentials like oil, eggs, and canned foods. As a club, we are proud to help contribute to a cause that helps save 28,000 kilograms of bread a month.
Recently, FFTH also conducted its annual toy drive. We are proud to say that we collected, wrapped, and donated over 10 boxes of toys this year. These toys went directly to the FFTH Toy Buffet event where underprivileged kids around Singapore came and picked out two toys each. We would like to thank all the teachers, students, and parents who donated the toys and helped make our contributions possible.
