DBS Foundation X NEA Hungry for Change Challenge
Food waste is a huge contributor to climate change. In Singapore, the Zero Waste Masterplan has identified food waste as one of the priority waste streams to be tackled. Last year alone, Singapore generated 817,000 tonnes of food waste, a 23% increase from the previous year, and about half of the food waste generated nationwide is from households.
On 25 August 2022, DBS Foundation and the National Environment Agency (NEA) launched the Hungry for Change Challenge, a nationwide challenge to empower youth to propose, develop and pilot innovative solutions that will prevent or reduce food waste in food establishments and households in Singapore.
The five most innovative and impactful ideas submitted by youths will be supported for piloting with a total funding of $125,000 from DBS Foundation! The teams will also have opportunities to consult with NEA and benefit from their expertise.
