ABOUT ZER0HUNGER

Zer0Hunger is a Sustainable Social Impact Action Platform that aims to be the most comprehensive platform addressing a wide range of social problems that includes poverty, hunger, food banks, fulfilment entities and community farms.

 

A one-stop access to data, it will allow networking opportunities for collective action. An integrated focal point where civil society, government agencies and the private sector converge in addressing the needs of the hungry. 

 

The Zer0Hunger movement aims to systematically address hunger in Malaysia, by mapping out hunger spots via our geolocate hunger map to match with available aid (provided by government, NGOs and other fulfilment agencies to avoid duplication, food wastage and to create a more systematic supply chain.

 

Upcoming initiatives include Urban/Community Farming programmes and PENTAS Charity Hub, our iconic one-stop aid centre in Kampung Baru - a great solution for us to run a focused and sustainable initiative, to enable us to fulfil our mission to provide aid to the community and to be a platform for youth development and volunteerism engagement.

 

Through providing food and basic needs, we can do so much more than feed people — we help all members of a community receive the fuel they need to be their best. Developing our network of food banks will be our mission in ‘helping build stronger communities’ meal by meal. 

Please note that Zer0Hunger is a registered social enterprise under Magic. We are still applying for a tax exempt status by the Ministry of Finance. As such, no tax receipt is currently available.
