Let’s Feed Singapore Better Together

Did you know that 1 in 10 families face food insecurity* today in Singapore? This is despite Singapore being ranked by the Economist Intelligence Unit as the most food-secure nation in the world on the Global Food Security Index in 2019.

Starting this Christmas, Dairy Farm Singapore is teaming up with The Food Bank Singapore to launch ‘Better Together’, a food donation initiative asking Singapore to come together to donate more nutritious food to families in need. Find out more about The Food Bank and their beneficiaries here.

Dairy Farm Singapore will kickstart the Better Together initiative by donating 10,000 meals to The Food Bank Singapore and hope to inspire customers to do the same.

The partnership kicks off with 10 pilot stores across Cold Storage and Giant with a view to roll out island-wide.

Help fight food insecurity in our community
'Better Together’ aims to complement existing food donation efforts by focusing on more nutritious products, to provide vulnerable families with the long-term dietary requirements key to support healthy living.
What is food insecurity?
Food insecurity is defined as a state when a household does not have or is not confident of having, economic and physical access to sufficient, acceptable food for a healthy life. In a study done by Singapore Management University commissioned by The Food Bank Singapore in 2019, The Hunger Report, it was found that food-insecure individuals are more likely to eat only one main meal a day compared to food-secure individuals. The effects of food insecurity go beyond hunger as food-insecurity was found to be associated with both physical and mental health detriments such as a high-risk BMI, stress, and depression.
