A Day with Food Angel

Hong Kong produces 3600 tonnes of food waste every day, 2/3 of which is generated in households. This amounts to 0.33kg of food waste per person per day. Food Angel, a sustainable Food Rescue and Food Assistance Program, was launched in 2011 with the ultimate goal of achieving Waste Not Hunger Not. Today, Food Angel serve 9000 free hot meals and food packs daily to people in need of food assistance. To support Food Angel, D&G Technology organized its HK staff to take part in the volunteer work program of Food Angel in 2017. It organized this meaningful activity for its staff again in 2018. Through the half-day program, the staff got to know food waste issues in Hong Kong and they helped prepare Food Angel meals together. This year the special feature of the event was that the Company invited the employees of the business partner Allied Environmental Consultancy to participate the event together. In addition to assisting in the processing of raw vegetables, preparing food packages, and assisting in the preparation of meals, the staff also assisted in serving hot meals to the elderly in the community centre of Food Angel and taste the surplus food. The Company hopes that the concept of Waste Not, Hunger Not can be disseminated to the staff and all staff can become Food Angels.
