Food from the Heart

FFTH is a non-profit voluntary food distribution program established in February 2003 after Singapore-based Austrian couple Henry and Christine Laimer read a report in The Sunday Times about bakeries discarding their unsold bread. Stirred, they then decided to channel surplus food from bakeries to those in need. AWA periodically calls for volunteers (between 12 and 15) for food packing drives. Look for announcements on our Community Service page, our Events page, and our Facebook group. Contact the AWA coordinator at ffth@awasingapore.org

Frequency:  Monthly shifts offered, 4 hours in duration 

Willing Hearts

Join fellow AWA members to prepare food for those less fortunate in Singapore.  Willing Hearts is a secular, non-affiliated charity that is wholly run by volunteers, apart from a handful of staff. It operates a soup kitchen that prepares, cooks and distributes approximately 6,000 daily meals to over 40 locations island wide, 365 days a year. Beneficiaries include the elderly, the disabled, low income families, children from single parent families or otherwise poverty stricken families, and migrant workers in Singapore.

As in previous years, AWA will arrange monthly shifts for members to gather to prepare food for those less fortunate.  Tasks that volunteers can expect to do include preparing daily meals, cleaning dishes, unpacking grocery trucks and repacking donated items.  Volunteering with Willing Hearts is a chance for you assist with the assembly of a massive volume of food that will directly impact someone immediately.

AWA is organizing a new group of volunteers to help with the next round of kidsREAD shifts starting soon. A brief training session is required.
