Description of Organization
Food from the Heart is a charity founded in February 2003 by Singapore-based Austrian couple Henry and Christine Laimer who were inspired to channel surplus food from bakeries to families in need after they read an article about bread wastage. Today, the independent non-profit is one of Singapore’s foremost charitable food distributors that makes a tangible and meaningful contribution to help fight hunger through bread rations and food packs, and bring joy through the distribution of toys and birthday celebrations. With the support of donors, food industry partners and more than 1,700 volunteers, Food from the Heart made a difference to the lives of over 40,000 people throughout Singapore by distributing S.91 million worth of food in 2018.
