What They Do
The Food Angel team has been in effort to rescue edible surplus food from the local food industry. Following a set of strict food safety protocols, the rescued food items are then prepared into nutritious hot meals and food packs in their two central kitchens and redistributed to the deprived communities across Hong Kong free of charge by their logistics team.
To date, we have provided over 5,358,885 meals and rescued over 4,613,488kg of surplus food from going to the landfills since the launch of our program in March 2011. Food Angel uses edible surplus food to produce 8000 hot meals and 1,000 food packs everyday.
Food Angel is a food rescue and food assistance program launched in 2011 by Bo Charity Foundation with the mission of "Waste Not, Hunger Not, With Love". The program rescues edible surplus food from the food industry that would otherwise be disposed of as waste. Following strict safety protocols, the rescued food items will then be prepared as nutritious hot meals in our central kitchens and be redistributed to serve the underprivileged communities in Hong Kong through our logistics team.
We currently serve 10,000 free meals and 2,000 food packs daily to people in need of food assistance and rescue 35 tonnes of edible surplus food from going to our landfills every week. For every donation of 120HKD, we are able to produce 10 free meals. Thank you very much for your support!
