At the end of the Asia Fruit Logistica expo last week we teamed up with FeedingHK (www.feedinghk.org) who redistribute food across the country to those in need.
Every day, 3,400 tons of food waste are sent to landfills in Hong Kong, while one million people live in poverty struggling to afford nutritious meals. Feeding HK bridges this gap by linking food companies and charities to redistribute surplus food.
Since they began in 2011 they have;
- rescued 1,300+tonnes of food from landfill
- connected with 200+ food companies
- redistributed food to 70+ charities
- supported 3,200,000 meals for people in Hong Kong
They were delighted with the fresh produce we donated after the show and we are proud to support such a worthy cause.
