Singapore.- Marina Bay Sands has hosted its third annual Sands Cares Global Food Kit Build in collaboration with community partner The Food Bank Singapore. Some 5,200 food kits were assembled by over 330 participants, including team members, retail tenants and representatives from beneficiary organisations. They were given to nine benefiting bodies, including Singapore Red Cross, PERTAPIS, and Sunlove.

Nicholas Ionides, vice president communications and corporate affairs at Marina Bay Sands, said: “The annual Food Kit Build is an important contribution to the community and our Team Members once again demonstrated their commitment to ensuring that everyone can have access to food. 

“Food insecurity is a critical issue around the world, and it is heartwarming that through the work of our staff and retail partners we can benefit thousands of families here in Singapore.”

Ian Butler, executive director of The Food Bank Singapore, commented: “Sands Cares has been an invaluable partner to The Food Bank Singapore through the Food Kit Build for the third consecutive year, lending their support by building, pledging, and packing 5,200 food kits. 

“The food assembled during this event will be distributed to over 5,000 families, bringing them joy and relief. In collaboration with our feeding partners, The Food Bank Singapore will distribute the food assembled during this event to our beneficiaries, ensuring that the food reaches those in need. The annual food kit built by Sands Cares not only demonstrates their commitment to positive social change but also significantly aids The Food Bank Singapore in our mission of ending food insecurity.”
