According to the General Household Survey 2015 published by the Department of Statistics Singapore, an estimate of 14.6% of households in Singapore earn a household income of less than SGD$1500 per month, making them more susceptible to food insecurity. In addition, rations or food donations provided may not meet the nutritional requirements to keep them healthy. This results in poorer nutritional health and a higher likelihood of contracting chronic diseases.
This Social Connex talk will explore the concepts of food insecurity and hidden hunger and consider ways in which we can enhance the food rations and donations provided to the underprivileged.
