PSCC Food Rescue Programme

WHEN: SUNDAY, 11TH JUNE 2017

WHERE: Four Points, Sheraton - 1201, Tower 3,Puchong Financial Corporate Centre (PFCC), 47100 Puchong, Selangor

RESCUE

PSCC currently rescues at least 2 tonnes of surplus food monthly. These include fresh “unpretty” vegetables, excess raw food, dry goods (e.g. oatmeal, dried fruit etc) from food packagers, and near and just-expired goods.

Redistribute

We work with established food banks like Kechara Soup Kitchen and Daily Bread Food Bank which have larger/nationwide networks of beneficiaries to redistribute rescued food. 
 
We have our own "Beneficiaries Registry" that includes needy households and organisations such as shelters, orphanages and homes that have fallen through the cracks and get little to no public or government support. 

And because combating hunger and malnutrition amongst the homeless and the urban poor is at the very heart of what we do, the Pit Stop also works with soup kitchens like Pertiwi Soup Kitchen and Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK).

 

Repurpose

Excess raw veggies or fruits that might otherwise be disposed of are repurposed and reengineered by our cooks and bottled for sale, as part of the Pit Stop’s efforts to be sustainable.

We have made lemon curds, passionfruit curds, kaya and nyonya-style dried shrimp (hebi) chili paste before!

What does the Pit Stop Community Cafe (PSCC) do with the surplus food we rescue?
