FOOD-CO 2.0

With additional funding from the SIE Fund, SJS launched the second phase of the project "FOOD-CO 2.0" to further enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the food support service sector, as well as step up advocacy for donation of food surplus. In Mar 2020, an additional funding has been approved under the SIE Fund for SJS to provide short-term assistance through the FOOD-CO platform to underprivileged population who were adversely affected by COVID-19.
