06 Dec 2016

The Straits Times, 6 Dec 2016 - In The Straits Times’ fifth annual Causes Week, individuals and groups who have made a difference to the community are highlighted. Article featured lawyer Dipa Swaminathan, who started an initiative to distribute unsold Starbucks snacks to foreign workers. This food redistribution project started by chance in May, when Dipa visited the SP’s Starbucks outlet to buy coffee for parents of players on her son's tennis team. The initiative soon grew to include more outlets and volunteers who helped pass the food to foreign workers every Saturday.
