Judith Tan and Vanessa Liu join volunteers as they swoop in to stem the problem and give the produce a second lease of life, even as the food industry pushes towards zero food waste

We were rescuing food to reduce food waste and the volume was way too much for us to consume at home, and we decided to share the rescue with (our) neighbours.
It was just a very simple thought that we could help the neighbours save some money on grocery bills and put the food to good use. Being in a new estate, we know that there are a lot of sandwich class here that falls through the cracks, and we decided that we could come in and help them in our little ways to help them save money.
