Deliveroo Singapore raises over S$60,000 for charity Food From the Heart
It will also hold a physical food drive at their Editions venue.
Deliveroo customers in Singapore have rallied to donate over S$50,000 for charity organisation Food from the Heart (FFTH) since December last year, the company revealed in an announcement.
The delivery platform matched the first S$10,000 worth of donations, bringing the total to over $60,000.
The funds were raised through the Deliveroo’s in-app donation feature and have benefited 1,500 low-income school age children and their families who are beneficiaries of FFTH's School Goodie Bag programme, which focuses on providing underprivileged primary and secondary school students and their families with food rations and better nutrition.
As part of its long-term partnership with FFTH, Deliveroo said it is extending its support to raise funds for the charity organisation’s ‘I CAN Award’, which celebrates the “resilience and achievements” of young beneficiaries who are part of the School Goodie Bag programme.
The donations raised will go towards purchasing items such as vouchers and trophies to reward 90 students and their families for their accomplishments.
Deliveroo will also hold a physical food drive at their Editions venue at Alice@Mediapolis. From 12 April, customers can drop off donations of food staples such as cooking oil, rice and canned goods at the Editions site, which will be distributed to disadvantaged families under FFTH’s food programme.
