1. Non-perishable food items We distribute rice, biscuits, oil, sugar, salt, condensed milk, sardine, button mushrooms, baked beans and beverages every month. To make your donation process hassle free, consider ordering online from supermarkets like NTUC FairPrice and have the items delivered to our warehouse.
2. Clean toys that are in good working condition Over the years, we noticed that Board games such as Scrabble, Monopoly and Lego are a huge hit with the children of all age and genders. These toys collected will be distributed at birthday parties, holiday parties and annual Toys Buffet.
3. Toiletries such as shampoo, shower gel, toothbrush, toothpaste. By distributing these bath amenities to our beneficiaries, we managed to reduce their cost of living. The beneficiaries under our care have an average per capita income between $0-$450.

Yes, Food from the Heart has IPC (Institute of Public Character) status and is able to issue tax deduction for cash donations only. Donations S$50 and above are eligible for tax deduction. The tax-deductible rate is 2.5 times of the donation amount.
Example: If the donation is $100, the donor will be eligible for $250 (2.5 times). The 2.5 times tax deduction is deducted against statutory income (which includes employment, trade income, etc) before arriving at assessable income.
Tax deductions for the donations will be automatically reflected in your tax assessments.
However, Food from the Heart will still issue a soft copy of tax deduction receipts as a practice. Should you wish to receive hard copies, kindly inform us accordingly.
Donors who do not provide the necessary details even after attempts for clarification will be treated as anonymous.
