Challenge

People, shops, or corporations will donate fresh food such as meat, vegetables, or fruits and the amounts are unpredictable. Without refrigerators and freezers, those foods will turn rotted easily before delivering to needy people or families. It causes food-waste again! Refrigerators and freezers will help us to keep food in a good conditions so that needy people are able to have fresh foods!

Solution

The project will help the distribution center is able to put more fresh foods and maintain it in the refrigerators and freezers for a period of time, so staffs are able to manage and distribute food to community food banks in Keelung, Taipei, New Taipei city, and Taoyuan. The service scale is wide, so foods can be stored in the refrigerators to fit the delivering schedule when receiving huge amount of donated fresh foods in order to keep the food condition well.

Long-Term Impact

There are 41 community food banks in Keelung, Taipei, New Taipei city, and Taoyuan will be benefited. Each community food banks each month is able to serve 80 people in average. In total, there will be 3295 persons-times a month be benefited and get rid of hunger through this End Hunger project.
