Feeding Hong Kong — bridging the gap between hunger and food waste
Who we are
Feeding Hong Kong is a Hong Kong registered charity established in 2011. Our mission is to fight hunger in Hong Kong and reduce the amount of quality food that is being sent to our city’s landfills. We also work to raise awareness about poverty, food insecurity and food waste in Hong Kong and promote healthy eating and nutritional education to the most vulnerable groups in our community. We are Hong Kong’s sole accredited member of the Global Food Banking Network, an international organisation dedicated to creating and strengthening food banks and national food bank networks.
What we do
Every day, we collect surplus nutritious food from manufacturers, growers, processors, distributors and retailers and deliver it to a network of partner charities, who in turn, provide food to those most in need in Hong Kong. By supporting existing grassroots feeding programmes, we make efficient use of established distribution channels and can focus our own resources on the highest standards in food collection, storage and transportation. Last year, through our partnerships with the food industry, we saved over 820 tonnes of food from landfill and in turn supported 132 charity programmes with a total of 2.17 million meals.
