Food Bank

Food Collection and Distribution Centre for the Poor and Needy

“ There’s enough on this planet for everyone’s needs but not for everyone’s greed.”
- Mahatma Gandhi

The Food Bank is a food collection and distribution centre to feed the hungry and hardcore poor located in Berkeley, Klang. Founded in 2002, the Food Bank for the Poor is the first of its kind in the country.

Malaysia alone generates 17,000 tonnes of food waste per day. Out of this 17,000 tonnes, Malaysians discarded 4,000 tonnes of edible food daily - enough to fill one-and-the-half Olympic-sized swimming pools. This amount can feed three million people with three meals a day.
