Suzanne Mooney hails from the United Kingdom and was originally a broadcast journalist with the BBC, reporting for the Today Show. A chance meeting with Robert Egger (who founded community kitchens in the US) was a turning point in her life as she realised the power of an individual to make a difference. This was further compounded after working with the United Nations in Switzerland where she learned first hand how hard it can be for large organisations to affect change.
Years later, when Suzanne moved to Malaysia with her husband and children, it was in April 2016, that she founded The Lost Food Project, with the help of some dedicated friends and volunteers. They started by distributing food from supermarkets to charities using their own cars: within two years it evolved to be the leading food rescue organisation in Malaysia. Since that day, The Lost Food Project has had a huge impact on reducing food waste in the Klang Valley and is now a team consisting of the TLFP Committee, a General Manager, Warehouse Manager, two full-time drivers and over 70 amazing volunteers.
