Every day, 3,600 tonnes of food waste are sent to landﬁll in Hong Kong, according to Feeding Hong Kong. Meanwhile, people in need are going hungry. What’s wrong with this picture?
Feeding Hong Kong rescues huge amounts of that food and redistributes it to those who need it. They’re long-time partners of Crossroads and also help us feed our own army of hungry volunteers each day, saving thousands from our annual budget. In 2018-19, they channeled 12,948 meals to Crossroads from food businesses in Hong Kong!
We’re deeply thankful for their services, as we are for our friends at FoodLink, who deliver excess hotel food to our kitchen twice a week, and FoodCo, who make regular offers of excess food to Crossroads.
