Membership Rewards can be a Huge Help!

A pin a day is great a year. Donate one's membership rewards points, it would become a great amount if everyone does the same! The Mustard Seed Mission started the community food bank project and invites everyone to join! Great gratitude to 12 branches of the Family Mart in Taichung, Taiwan, they promoted the event of “Donate Points to Help Others”, from March 2019, with the kindness of the costumers, they sent breads, tissues, and all kinds of daily supplies to those in need.

According to the statistic from Environmental Protection Administration, there are 2,750,000 tons of food waste in Taiwan every year, that means, in average each one of us has wasted 120 kilograms of food each year. These foods would be enough for all the low income families in Taiwan to eat for 20 years. The Mustard Seed Mission now runs 200 community food banks and distribution depots in Taiwan. Through the donation of corporations, stores, and the public, we can decrease food waste and bring new life to them!

 Family Mart along with the kindness of the public

Since March, Family Mart Taichung branches are willing to promote the points giving event one after the other. The stores help collect the points that was donated by the public and redeem daily necessities for the vulnerable. Among those supplies, including fresh bread (till now over 3000 breads are donated), tissues, drinks, and water…etc., all will be delivered in the 61 appointed places of the Mustard Seed Mission in central Taiwan.

Among those kind-hearted Family Mart Taichung branches, there are 10 branches in the Nantun District, and 2 branches in the Xitun District. The Mustard Seed Mission thanks all the stores that are involved in this public welfare activity. Together, we can help the underprivileged families, and make their lives better.

In Taiwan, there are 1.6 million populations a year suffering from hunger! Yet, more than hundred tons of food are thrown away. The Mustard Seed Mission see the need and establish community food banks to receive donated food and offer service in the communities!
