Stirred, they then decided to channel surplus food from bakeries to those in need.
Food from the Heart has since evolved to become a resource bank, taking in non-perishable food items, toys and toiletries besides bread, whilst recycling and rechanneling whatever they can to good use.

Following their well-received retail debut in Singapore, Moncler's second boutique here is currently brewing and is set to open in The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands sometime in Q1 2019.
The origins of the name lie in its very roots: Moncler is in fact an abbreviation of Monestier-de-Clermont, a mountain village near Grenoble. Here, in 1952 inspired entrepreneurs René Ramillon and Andrè Vincent founded the Company which would go on to produce the renowned down jacket.
In the beginning Moncler only made quilted sleeping bags, a single model of a lined hooded cape and tents with a telescopic structure and an external flysheet. These robust, functional articles immediately proved a hit with the public, as the new social phenomenon of mountain holidays began to take hold.
The first down jackets were conceived to protect workers who wore them over their overalls against the cold, in the small mountain factory. French mountaineer Lionel Terray first noticed them and foresaw their potential. The ‘Moncler pour Lionel Terray’ high performance collection was born.

The Salted Plum, formerly known as long-term pop-up Five Ten, has officially opened its doors at a two-storey shop house along Circular Road after much anticipation.
The name “The Salted Plum” was chosen with reference to the ingredient commonly used in Taiwanese cuisine. With striking blue hued walls and boasting a full view of the kitchen, The Salted Plum eatery is set to offer a casual, fun dining experience with mainly Taiwanese pop music from the 2000s playing in the background.
With an improved version of the Taiwanese tapas dishes that were well-loved at Five Ten, the intimate 98-seater has kept to its winning formula of dishes served at friendly prices of just $5 and $10.
The menu created by Chef Shawn Koh has undergone upgrades, following an extensive research trip around Taiwan, such as Taipei, Keelung, Taichung, Tainan and Kaoshiung, where he immersed himself in the local authentic dining culture and learnt traditional preparation methods from the Taiwanese.
Signature dishes include the Smashed Baby Potatoes ($5), a tongue-in-cheek take on the usual French fries. Here, baby potatoes are deep-fried, then smashed and sprinkled with a generous dose of salted plum powder. The popular Taiwanese Fried Chicken, a well-known street food, is marinated with soy and sesame, deep-fried, then served with nori mayonnaise ($10).
For a touch of luxury, the eatery also offers Live Boston Lobster ($25), steamed and with soy and sesame dressing, and also Slipper Lobster ($25) cooked with five spice during dinner. Limited portions, however, are available each week.

Fraser’s travels to Latin America, including a trip to Rio de Janeiro in 2014 for the FIFA World Cup, inspired him to create Vasco and bring his appreciation for Latin culture to life; an appreciation shared by Vasco partners Christian Hartmann and Andrew Walsh who also felt strongly that the South American scene was missing in Singapore.
Helming the kitchen is Executive Chef and Vasco partner Andrew Walsh, previously Executive Chef of stellar establishments Esquina and The Study.
