2. To Reach Out - And assist members of marginalised communities through food, essential services and training with the ultimate aim of reintegration into conventional society, should they so choose.
3. To Minimise - Food waste through food rescue, redistribution and repurposing.
We have had to pivot and change our regular programs because of the global pandemic and the resulting global economic slowdown, and to this end, we have instituted new programs to serve the hungry and marginalised.
Our current programs include:
1. The Pit Stop Lunch Service, for between 100 and 150 homeless and urban poor. The costs for this averages between RM1,200 and RM1,800 daily. Please do visit our funding appeal page to contribute.
2. The Pit Stop Food Rescue Program - Each day, Malaysians waste up to 15,000 tonnes of food, of which 3,000 tonnes are still edible. These food only need to be redistributed or repurposed, especially during this pandemic. However, food rescue comes with its own costs in terms of logistics, fuel and storage costs. While the benefits generally outweigh the costs, we need your financial support to continue rescuing and redistributing food.
3. The Pit Stop Welfare Homes Support Program - The global pandemic and resulting global economic downturn has severely impacted numerous homes and orphanages that rely on ad hoc contributions to feed their residents. A number of them turned to the Pit Stop Community Cafe, which now supports up to 20 homes by supplementing their food needs.
4. PSCC Household Care Packs - When a household in need is brought to our attention - ideally before a White Flag is raised - we put together a care pack aimed at supporting the household for two weeks. To continue doing this, we would need the support of everyone.
