Currently, over 1.6 million people live below the poverty line in Hong Kong. To ensure that every needy person has access to a hot, healthy meal, every single day, we act as a bridge — a charity dedicated to connecting the supply directly to the demand, as often as possible, by collecting safe-to-eat surplus food from F&B outlets all over the city and deliver to those in need. While reducing hunger we also reduce the pressure on our city’s landfills.

Each new day brings new and exciting challenges as we aim to expand the number of hot meals we can provide into every district of Hong Kong and as we continue to “Replace Hunger with a Smile”!
