Krsna's Free Meals has been using a small second-hand Suzuki van these last 3 years (2018-present). The trusty van is seeing its last few months. We have repaired it 3 times to make sure its road-worthy and safe for our volunteers to drive.

Our current Suzuki van's capacity is 350Kg which has become too small to load the free vegetables and fruits from Pasir Panjang Wholesale Market. We need to make 2 trips; one on Wednesday and another on Sat. We also make 2 trips to collect raw ingredients from a temple every week due to the limited capacity. This adds to our fuel cost as well.

The air-conditioning has completely died and the interior is seeing some serious wear and tear. It's time to let it go.

We hope to buy a second-hand van with a capacity of 1000kg that would help immensely with our collection of raw ingredients. The estimated cost is $30,000 and we hope with your support we can make this happen.
