Poh Li San – Fruits and Vegetables Distribution – Colourful Food Vibrant Life
Sembawang West Branch activists organised a Fruits and Vegetable Distribution called "Colourful Food, Vibrant Life" at the void deck of rental block 785A with more than 400 units in 2019. Three years on, we have expanded our monthly distribution to include beneficiaries staying in another three blocks of two-room flats. We work with Food Rescue Sengkang, a volunteer group that collects rescued fruits and vegetables from the wholesale markets. Our volunteers will collect the items, send them over to block 785A, where items are sorted and repacked before being offered free to residents.
This project has four key goals:
i. Reduction of food waste.
ii. Increase residents' consumption of healthy greens and fruits.
iii. Reduce monthly expenses for residents in rental and two-room flats.
iv. Opportunities for volunteers to engage and assist residents.
In PAP Women's Wing, we take action to protect our environment. We recognise that climate change and environmental degradation pose significant threats to our society and future generations, and we believe that it is our responsibility to act.
