Wearnes has partnered with local charity Food from the Heart to collect and distribute food donations to the less privileged in Singapore.
Dubbed ‘Heart on Wheels’, this is Food from the Heart’s 20th-anniversary food donation drive, which will see food being donated to less-privileged individuals and families. These are demographics with an average per capita income of below $690 per month.
In 2019, Food from the Heart helped 44,600 beneficiaries. This assistance has since ballooned to more than 60,00 beneficiaries with food support throughout Singapore, an impressive 34% increase since pre-COVID.
Here is the list of food items requested for Heart on Wheels 2023:
- Rice (2 & 5kg bags)
- Cooking oil (1-litre bottles)
- Instant noodles
- Canned food (Items such as sardines, tuna, curry chicken, soups)
- Coffee, tea and Milo sachets
- Oat, cereal, biscuit and bread spreads
*Do note that items should be at least three months away from their expiry dates
