In 2016, Tengku Zatashah kickstarted the #zerofoodwastage campaign for us to serve impoverished communities with surplus food rescued from hotel Ramadhan buffets and supermarkets.
We recorded 20 tonnes of food rescued from 2016-2019, and this number continues to grow.
The Surplus Food Donation campaign was launched in April 2016, providing us with a dependable supply of produce and baked goods for poor families and individuals.
Up till 2020, we distributed over 1,500 tonnes in surplus food to those in need through this collaboration.
Since 2016, Sunway Hotels & Resort have partnered with us to ensure that surplus food from their hotel buffets and dinners go to the poor and homeless. This initiative, part of the #zerofoodwastage campaign, takes place year-round, including during Ramadhan.
Participating hotels include Sunway Resort, Sunway Clio Hotel, Sunway Pyramid Hotel and Sunway Putra Hotel.
We have been rescuing and rechannelling surplus food nationwide through our collaboration with AEON since the launch of their Community Food Share programme in 2018.
AEON directs unsold food from their supermarkets to us which is then given to B40 families and individuals throughout Malaysia.
We started with five locations in May 2019, collecting and distributing surplus food from KFC in the Klang area.
Today, we routinely make trips to-and-fro 30 locations, allowing us to provide food to many more beneficiaries.
