Vision & Mission
The vision at Foodlink Foundation is to ensure that every needy person has access to a hot, healthy meal, every single day. Foodlink acts as a bridge — a charity dedicated to connecting the supply directly to the demand, as often as possible, by collecting safe-to-eat surplus food from F&B outlets all over the city and deliver to those in need. The benefits are twofold — while reducing hunger Foodlink also reduces the pressure on the city’s landfills.

What you can do to help
Be a Food Donor:
Every 20 kg of your surplus food gives eight families of four, or 32 people, a hot, nourishing meal. If your organization has food surplus and an ambition to help the community, then healthy, nutritious food is what Foodlink needs.
