Need to Feed the Need (NFN) is a community-run initiative that aims to provide one meal every Thursday to the less-fortunate in KL.
NFN is a soup kitchen that distributes food and other basic necessities in Kuala Lumpur. NFN operates out of Medan Kasih, a purpose-built government-constructed facility at Lorong Medan Tuanku 2, every Thursday night.
NFN’s patrons are the homeless and urban poor of all age groups; parents with newborn babies to senior citizens; anyone who has found themselves in difficult circumstances.
Every Thursday, NFN serves approximately 400 patrons with a hot meal, up to two side dishes (kuih, buns, etc.) and bottled water. The amount spent per person is about RM8, which equates to RM3,200 per week to sustain our basic operations.
NFN was founded in October 2013 by a group of individuals who identified a void in soup kitchen operations on Thursday nights.Although NFN is now registered under the Registrar of Societies (PPM-009-14-20042017), it is operated and managed entirely by permanent volunteers without reward, assuring our contributors 100% of the aid received is channeled entirely back to those in need.
Providing meals and other basic necessities such as toiletries and diapers is by no means a long term solution to the situation, but it does help the patrons get by in the meantime, in a small but meaningful way. As such, any contribution, no matter the amount, goes a long way towards helping NFN to help those less fortunate and deserving of a healthy meal.
We welcome sponsorship in various forms including the supply of meal packs, bottled water, kuih or fruits for distribution or financial donations whereby we will procure the necessary through our long term catering partners who are vetted to meet our strict dietary requirements and portion sizes. Throughout the years, we have identified trends in numbers of patrons depending on the time of year and festive periods resulting in varying order sizes from as little as 250 packs to over 400 packs. We closely monitor these trends to ensure there is never any food wastage. Our management team would welcome the opportunity to discuss further in detail and work with you to develop a mutually sustainable sponsorship arrangement.
