FARMS TO FAMILIES CAMPAIGN

About the Campaign

Farms to Families is a joint collaboration between The Local Farm & Food from the Heart (FFTH). The key objectives of the campaign are to support local farms alleviate hunger and by providing the needy access to local fresh produce in a sustainable manner for both beneficiaries and local farmers

In March to May 2021, FFTH conducted a dipstick survey which interviewed 93 beneficiaries that came under the purview of our Community Shop @ Mountbatten. Beneficiaries shared, as part of areas to improve, their wish to have healthy, fresh produce. In order to deliver on this wish, Food from the Heart is pleased to partner with The Local Farm by Gardenasia, who represents local farmers in Singapore, in delivering fresh and healthy produce straight from the farm to the tables of needy families. Help us in changing the landscape of food support in the future by supporting local farmers and providing healthy, fresh food for the needy.

The Farm to Families Campaign will benefit 1,000 families from Jan to Jun 2022 and 2,000 families from Jul to Dec 2022. Your donations* will help to purchase local farm^ fresh goodness including; local green vegetables, fresh mushrooms, quail eggs, eggs and more to our beneficiaries.

With the support of donors, food industry partners and more than 10,000 volunteers, Food from the Heart made a difference to the lives of 53,700 people throughout Singapore by distributing S$6.35 million worth of food in 2020.
