According to Solid Waste Corp Malaysia, Malaysians generate about 15,000 tonnes of food waste DAILY, of which 3,000 tonnes is still edible and can be rescued.
The Pit Stop currently rescues an average of 1.2 tonnes of food monthly. The food rescued include fresh “unpretty” vegetables, excess raw food, excess dry goods (e.g. oatmeal, dried fruit etc) from food packagers and near and just-expired goods.
We work with food banks like Food Aid Foundation and Kechara Soup Kitchen 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 support.
