Food Assistance During COVID-19

Food pack for our members
Food pack for our members

During the outbreak of COVID-19 from February to May 2020, Food Angel had to suspend the hot meal services and community centre services as the venues have to be temporarily closed to reduce the risk of infection among service users, staff and volunteers. We were very concerned with the livelihoods of our members from deprived families as many faced unemployment and shortened work hours, as well as our elderly who were unable to source infection control items like masks and hand sanitizers. To cope with the situation, we tried to change our mode of production and service.

At the beginning, we served a weekly food pack with purchased food items such as rice packs, canned food and vegetables using donations and funds, and asked our members to collect the packs once a week instead of daily, as to minimize the needed journey to travel to our centre to reduce exposure and number of gatherings. We tried to maintain our outreach service to deliver the food packs to the elderly who are most fragile. With the kind donation from different companies and the general public, we were able to include masks and sanitizing items in our packs, which were precious gifts to our members. Together with our charity partners, we hoped to sustain our meal services as much as we could.

From March onward, we resumed cook-chill meal production at our Harvest Mill, so we could produce cook-chill dishes to add some variety to the weekly food packs.We were also grateful that with larger sponsorships, we could deliver meal coupons from convenience stores and fast food chains, soup coupons and supermarket coupons, so the service users could purchase necessary items. 

Recently starting from June, both our hot and cook-chill meal production have resumed as the number of local cases remain low in Hong Kong. We hope everybody can stay safe and healthy. Together we can fight the virus! Thank you very much for your kind support.
