Food Rescue Programme
The YE Food Rescue Programme (FRP) works with the Jakarta Hotels Association to secure prepared and perishable food from 40 four and five star hotels in Jakarta to distribute to hungry and malnourished people living in scavenger communities in and around Jakarta. Everything is provided free of charge to over 200-400 children, mothers and the elderly each day, with an average of 3.2 tons of food being delivered to diverse communities each month.
We prioritize food safety in all our programs and plan to work towards establishing a professional food bank to continue to reach the hungry and impoverished. Historically, from August 2003, the program has rescued over 432,900 kilograms of food providing meals to over 1,484,000 individuals in 371,000 families. The Food Rescue Programme is committed to helping provide food and a healthier diet to hungry and malnourished people in the scavenger communities in and around Jakarta.
