What is Good Food For Community?
On 6 April 2020, Good Food For Community was started to help underserved communities fight hunger and provide hot meals during this circuit breaker period to respond to the increasing support needed from these communities.
Throughout this period, Good Food for Community has been working closely with social service agencies (SSAs). These are non-profit organisations who are serving these communities and assessing their needs.
Social service agencies have been reaching out to the community and are trying to understand and support existing and emerging needs on the ground. However, there is a limitation to the number of people in the community which they can reach out to and the speed at which the support can be given.
With the recent measures, it also added another challenge for social service agencies to reach out to certain parts of the community in need. We saw the opportunity to support the good heart work our social service agencies are doing, and wanted to help ease some of the burden on these communities by serving ready to eat, halal certified meals, before other forms of support from the SSAs come into place.
Who Do We Serve?
21 communities ranging from low income families, disadvantaged children and youths, persons with disabilities, seniors and migrant workers have benefitted from GFFC meals. With the evolving ground needs, we are presently still active in 9 of these communities.
Impact Created Thus Far
Thanks to your overwhelming support and generosity, we successfully raised $52,454 which supported the cost of 15,848 meals from 6 April to 4 May 2020.
We are committed to serving 37,239 meals in the extended circuit breaker period (5 May to 1 June) and need your help to cover the cost of meals totalling $71,000.
How Will My Donations Be Used?
Your donations will be channelled towards the purchase of meals and food delivery costs to Manna Pot and Spize. 100% of your donations go towards the initiative and there will be no administrative or manpower costs claimed for this initiative by Common Ground, Society Staples Cares or The Thought Collective.

Thank you for what you’re doing 😊
Take courage. We are one family and God our Father hears the cry of His people.
I believe like most of everyone on this page, we have been blessed enough to be able to pick and choose what we want to eat and when we want to eat. And now much more than ever, we need to extend this blessing towards the people and communities who may need this much more now. So thus I implore you to give what you can because this can be the difference maker between a full meal and going to bed hungry.
Thanks for doing this for our community!
Keep up the good work!
