Automated Food Dispenser service in the pandemic

AFD in Fanling

As the COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges and led to growing unemployment and underemployment, Food Angel is receiving a rising demand for food assistance from the public. To support the local community, Food Angel launched the Automated Food Dispenser (AFD) service to serve free cook-chill meals in different districts, with the support by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust. This innovative initiative allows for a flexible collection of cook-chill meals supporting those with irregular working hours, and it aims to relieve some financial burden the needy families face. Eligible applicants approved by social workers have distributed a digital membership card. With the QR code, members are able to collect cook-chill meals from the automated food dispensers, which functions like a vending machine. The meals can be easily reheated with a rice cooker, microwave, or wok at home. 

At age 55, Mr. Luk enjoys solitude, and he resides alone in a sub-divided flat in Kwuntong. He takes pride in self-reliance and has never applied for any kind of subsidy. Unfortunately, it has become difficult for him to pay rent as he lost his job in the pandemic. The AFD programme gives him the flexibility to collect meals later in the night, which exempts him from socializing with other service users in the usual meal distribution points. With the limited space for cooking in the subdivided flat, he can now still enjoy a warm meal with just a rice-cooker in this cooler season!

The AFD programme has helped various people affected in the pandemic so far. Please continue to support Food Angel's meal service so that more needy families can still enjoy warm meals during this difficult time.
