On November 14th, 2016, cure hosted a charity dinner with Tom Aikens, and made a donation to Food Bank Singapore.
What is a Food Bank?
To make it really simple, a food bank is a place where companies or people can come to deposit or donate their unused or unwanted food which will then be collected and allocated to the needy through a network of member beneficiaries such as family service centres, various types of homes, soup kitchens, and other VWOs.
As the price of food continues to rise, many middle to low income families have problems putting food on the table as salaries are not increasing as quickly. Moreover, based on our observation, we do know that there are pockets of unused food within the food industry that can most certainly be put to better use.
Therefore, based on our sincere passion for food, we decided to set up The Food Bank Singapore to help out in whatever ways we can. To find out more about us, simply navigate head to http://www.foodbank.sg/
