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.
The current capacity of the Suzuki van is 350Kg. We have to make 2 trips weekly to Pasir Panjang Wholesale Center to pick up the donated vegetables due to the limited capacity. We have also been invited to pick up free vegetables from Sri Lankaramaya Buddhist Temple every Sat. Our volunteers have to make 2 trips again to pick up the allocated vegetables for our soup kitchen. 4 trips instead of 2 means twice the fuel cost and time to load and unload the groceries.
Help support our campaign as 100% of all funds collected goes towards the purchase of a second-hand van. God bless and be safe. Thank you
