Project Description :
The Feed The Needy (FTN) project was initiated by Lion Uma Pushpanathan in the beginning of 2004 and was launched on 8th March 2004. The project started off with the the food being cooked in the kitchen of the Railway Recreation Club (RRC) whose restaurant is run by Lion Teoh Lee Kwon of the Lions Club of Kuala Lumpur North. We distribute the food every evening at 5.00pm, Mondays to Fridays (except on designated public holidays) from the corridor of RRC.
The FTN has received media publicity over the last 12 years and recognition from the general public and corporate sector with positive feedback.
We also serve extra goodies for Chinese New Year, Hari Raya, Deepavali and Christmas.
On days that we have more than one sponsor, the second sponsor will sponsor breakfast bags, which will consist of a packet drink, a fruit and a cream bun.
1. Objective of the Signature Project
The objective of FTN is to ensure that the less fortunate, who in this case consist of the visually impaired, handicapped, unemployed, homeless and needy in the Brickfields area at least have one decent nutritious meal a day and to prevent social problems arising due to hunger.
