Why Food Waste Republic?
It is not enough to love food. In a time where food supply is at our fingertips, we needed to better understand where it comes from and goes to.

From working undercover at banquets to collecting food waste from 150 families, we hope to inspire food enthusiasts to look into this looming problem with our in-depth reports on food wastage in Singapore.
