The collected food will then be re-distributed to the needy in Kowloon City district. As of 2020, our team collected a total of 87,078kg surplus food, equally average 183kg of surplus food daily. We further extended our service by a home visit to the recipients, suchas the elderly, singleton and subdivided room families to make the recipient feel closer to us. To reciprocate the gratitude to the donors’ continuous support on food donation, our volunteers prepared lunch boxes together with the recipients and send back to the wet market. This cycle connects the one giving out while at the same time touching the recipient’s heart.
