Our CEO Ms. Sim gets in on the #CleanPlateChallenge How to participate: 1. Finish your food 2. Take a photo of your finished food and post it on Instagram or Facebook. Only posts by public accounts will be counted 3. Hashtag #CleanPlateChallenge and tag us. Instagram: @foodfromtheheartsg @deliveroo_sg Facebook: @foodheart, @deliveroosg 4. Tag at least 3 friends to spread the word. ********* Why Clean Plate Campaign? The world is producing more food than we can finish. Yet, it is unevenly distributed, with the poor going hungry while food is being thrown away elsewhere. Food from the Heart has been running the Clean Plate Campaign in schools by educating students of the environmental and societal impact of food waste, and instilling in them the habit of mindful eating. Food is precious, especially during difficult times like now. The needy and vulnerable are suffering the impacts of covid-19, and what they need is your support and understanding. Stand in solidarity with us by spreading our message with the #CleanPlateChallenge today, and Deliveroo will donate $1 for each post to help Food from the Heart feed the needy. Thank you for your support.

Whytespace is an inaugural installation where local designer works will be showcased alongside lifestyle goods, plants and pottery in an uninterrupted white space.
