We received a call from a food importer earlier, expressing his intention to donate a few cargo containers of frozen chicken wings to Food Angel. Due to the pandemic, many shipments are delayed, causing imported containers to be stuck at the Hong Kong transfer station.The importer refused to accept the goods as he has to pay an expensive storage fee, thus he decided to make a donation to Food Angel to cut further loses.
For safety reasons, our QA team sent the sample of the chicken wings to the lab for test. After receiving a satisfactory result, our kitchen accepted a portion of the product, and shared the rest with our charity partners. We were all thrilled to receive the unexpected meat donation, and were looking forward to trying different cooking methods of chicken wings.
Receiving a food donation in large quantity is an operational challenge, as we need to handle the food before expiry in a timely manner, and our chef team has to come up with creative ways to treat the food to create a variety of menus. We were fortunate to solve the storage issue, as a warehouse offered assistance with instant storage rental. It was all worth the effort when we saw the joy on our service users’ faces.
