Further Collaboration with Food Angel on Food Rescue

28  October  2016

On 3 October 2016, the Airport Authority (AA) was presented an Award of Appreciation by Food Angel during its Thanksgiving Luncheon in recognition of the AA's long term collaboration with the food rescue organisation. In 2015, Food Angel has collected over 30 tonnes of surplus food from Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), and transformed them into over 25,000 hot meal boxes for distribution to the underprivileged.

To make the food rescue programme more effective, the HKIA Environmental Fund recently financed Food Angel to expand the surplus food collection areas to Tung Chung and Discovery Bay, and has begun working with Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Tung Chung Integrated Services to distribute meals in Tung Chung.
