The Lost Food Project

Help feed the most vulnerable people in Malaysia

The Lost Food Project collects surplus food from supermarkets and manufacturers in Malaysia. This good food is given to those most in need. Currently edible surplus food is often wasted and discarded when it cannot be sold.

Redistribution not only makes a big difference to the community, it makes a massive difference to the environment.

Please join us by giving a donation towards our running costs [we are all volunteers - no one takes a salary]. We need donations to support our expanding transportation and warehousing costs.

Your money will allow us to scale up from volunteers driving their own cars, to utilising our newly donated 5Tonne truck - which will allow us to collect more food and deliver to dozens more charities.

  1. Senior Truck driver salary (incl. socio, EPF, insurance, etc) RM4,000
  2. Warehouse manager salary (incl. socio, EPF, insurance, etc) RM5,000
  3. Electricity for warehouse RM800
  4. Rental for warehouse RM2,500
  5. Toll & maintenance for the truck RM1,000
  6. Printing/stationary/misc RM1,200

TOTAL RM10,000 per month.
