Empower Seniors by Reviving Nostalgic Foods

At True Origins, we tap into the seniors' wealth of knowledge and empower them to revive nostalgic foods and pass down their stories, values and wisdom to future generations. The seniors (e.g., those who lived through the WWII, those living alone in rental flats) are key resources to our intangible cultural assets and documenting their stories in an engaging manner is crucial to spreading awareness about Singapore's beginnings, culture and identity. This project aims to start a social movement towards reliving our kampung days - times when people regardless of race, language, religion or generation are strongly bonded together by reviving nostalgic foods that are long lost or on the verge of disappearing!
