FOOD FOR THOUGHT
IN COLLABORATION WITH PASAR GRUB AND FOOD AID FOUNDATION, THE A-LISTERS CHANNEL FOOD AID TO THE UNPRIVILEGED
FOOD WASTE IS a massive problem in Malaysia. Based on the data released by the Solid Waste Management and Public Cleansing Corporation (SWCorp), Malaysians generated 17,007 tonnes of food waste per day back in 2021. Alongside chronic poverty, conflict and economic shocks, food loss is one of the root causes of hunger worldwide. Food loss also represents a waste of the very resources used to produce food.
The long-term effects of hunger and poor nutrition can be devastating. When people can’t afford enough to eat, they are often denied other basic needs as well ̶ including housing, employment, and healthcare. In collaboration with Pasar Grub and Food Aid Foundation, A-Listers Abel Hao Tian, Iskandar Al-Haziq, Kingsley Tan, and Syafiq Mobin were inspired to channel food aid to assist Lovely Nursing Centre, a nursing home located at University Garden Seaport, Petaling Jaya.
