About this event

What is a food rescue mission?

A food rescue mission involves the 3 stages of ‘Collect-Sort-Share’. This is a total hands-on activity where participants will be able to immerse themselves in a typical food rescue, gain first-hand insight into the food waste reduction landscape, and learn creative ways of using rescued food.

Participants can expect

  • to do a lot of walking, carry loads, push trolleys, and sweat out.
  • to handle donated produce comprising a range of quality.
  • to bring home at least a bag of rescued produce.
  • to work together with others as a team.

As the activity is conducted outdoors, please be prepared for instances of wet weather.

Little India Veggie Collection, or LIVC in short, is a food rescue programme focused within the vicinity of Little India in Singapore. Our community partners are grocery shops that sell fresh produce such as vegetables and fruits as well as dry goods. Our rescuer community members consist of public participants that actively partake in the rescue missions and share resources with one another on how to put the food to good use by converting them into tasty dishes or by sharing them with various appreciative recipients. This programme serves as an avenue for surplus or unsold edibles to be donated back to non-purchasing consumers, thus creating a local circular economy.

When does this happen?

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Late evening, as the grocery shops end their business day.
