Our Shared Purpose

Sharing Hope, Nourishing Lives


Food from the Heart (FFTH) is a non-profit charity that feeds the hungry through its food distribution programme. It was established in February 2003 after Singapore-based Austrian couple Henry and Christine Laimer read a report in The Sunday Times about bakeries discarding their unsold bread. Stirred, they then decided to channel surplus food from bakeries to those in need.

FFTH started with 120 volunteers in 2003. As of 2017, we work with over 1,700 volunteers, and together we reach 35,500 beneficiaries across Singapore.
