Festive Food Drive
The next few months are some of the hardest faced by those in need in Malaysia. During the wet season, price increases make it hard for families to make ends meet.
The families & charities we serve rely on our food partners to give surplus food. We receive a lot of good quality food, but the products shown in the poster below are not often given to us. Please put a box of staple foods together to help those in need this festive season.
Where should I deliver my festive food box or boxes collected by my organisation, school or university?
Please deliver to TLFP Warehouse
Location: c/o Malaysian Red Crescent, 54 Lengkok, Belfield

Lunch n Learn Program
The Lost Food Project team regularly delivers workshops and presentations to organisations wishing to learn more about the issue of food over production and food waste. Our team will share the latest statistics on food waste in Malaysia and globally, they will explain the cause of food waste and the effects this is having on our environment.
During the interactive workshop, participants will test their knowledge and become more aware of their own personal impact on the environment through food waste. Participants will also discover how they can help The Lost Food Project. Get in touch with CSR team at email@example.com to arrange a Lunch n Learn.
Corporate Social Responsibility
The Lost Food Project offers a variety of opportunities for organisations to deliver on their CSR commitments through volunteering opportunities and sponsorship.
Our CSR partners at Touch n Go supported our PPR Program as well as created a charity Touch n Go card for TLFP that raised over RM30,000. distributing surplus food to the urban poor. Shell Malaysia joined dozens of other corporate organisations to support our Ramadan campaign, the Twenty 200 Challenge, in which Shell Malaysia staff raised over RM20,000 for TLFP.
For World Food Day, Unilever partnered with The Lost Food Project to raise money for meals through a Lazada Super Brand Day held on 17th October 2018. For every Unilever product purchased on Lazada on that day, Unilever donated 5 meals to people in need. 100,000 meals were donated to The Lost Food Project (see image below). Furthermore, Unilever and Lazada staff participated in a CSR initiative to help us sort and distribute food to those in need.
Baxter Malaysia supported The Lost Food Project with 82,000 meals for people in need. Baxter Malaysia staff also rolled up their sleeves and volunteered as part of a CSR activity held at our warehouse.

Markets and bazaars
The Lost Food Project attends many markets and bazaars throughout the year to increase awareness of food waste and encourage support from the general public. Thank you to the many societies, schools and universities that allow us to take up space at these events.
On World Food Day on 16th October 2018, The Lost Food Project held a one-day challenge to encourage each of us to respect our food and reduce our own personal food waste. The #MYCleanPlate challenge was taken up by hundreds of hungry people keen to finish everything on their plate and reduce their personal food waste. Visit us on Instagram to see some photos of the event.
Thank you to the many schools, universities, corporate organisations, charities and individuals who took part across Kuala Lumpur and even as far as Johor Bahru!
The Lost Food Project raised almost RM40,000 that will go to rescuing more food and feeding those in need.
