Food Bank's mission to help Singapore's needy

Being in the food distribution business, co-owner of FoodXervices Nicholas Ng knows first-hand about the food wastage that goes on in supermarkets. "Many products that do not make it off the shelves of supermarkets usually end up getting incinerated even before they are expired," said Mr Ng.

Seeking to do good through a food-related effort, and seeing the amount of food wastage that was going on, the owners and siblings of the family business FoodXervices, Nichol and Nicholas Ng started Food Bank Singapore. It is a registered charity which aims to be the leading centralised organisation for coordinating all food donations in Singapore.
