Our Mission

TLFP aim to contribute towards enhancing the quality of life of its beneficiaries through the continued delivery of food and other essentials, whilst promoting environmental awareness through its operations in line with global sustainable efforts and aspirations.

The Need

Malaysia reportedly waste 4,000 tonnes of edible food daily, whilst many households, especially urban poor families, suffer from malnutrition, stunting, anemia and other health related issues.

The Solution

TLFP partner with donors, food industry players including manufacturers, suppliers, supermarkets, wholesalers, etc. to collect food deemed as surplus before it reaches the landfill, and distribute the same to the needy identified through beneficiary partners

Our Impact

Since they started in 2016, TLFP collected over 2.8 million kilogram of food, which is equivalent to over 9.1 million meals and prevented over 7 million kilogram of greenhouse gas emission from polluting the environment.

The Lost Food Project (TLFP) provide meals through an efficient networking model that allows them to expand their operations seamlessly and build capacity as needed. At the moment TLFP provide meals to over 10 thousand people weekly through partnerships with 80 charities and NGOs, serving underserved communities be it elderlies, orphans, homeless, people with disabilities, refugees, as well as over 10 B40 communities through our partnerships with local parliamentarians, residents associations, local councils and governments. Focusing more on the the collection and distribution aspects of operations, they enhance the outreach capabilities by strengthening the core of their work which is logistics and procurement with three chiller trucks and two warehouses and supported by experienced professional staff. Sustaining such operations require diligent financial and strategic planning to ensure we are able to continue contributing to these communities whilst maintaining the highest standards required in food handling.
