Food Rescue Program

Food Angel is a food rescue and food assistance program launched in 2011 by Bo Charity Foundation with the mission of “Waste Not, Hunger Not, With Love”.

The program rescues edible surplus food from different sectors of the food industry that would otherwise be disposed of as waste. Following strict safety protocols, the rescued food items will then be prepared as nutritious hot meals in our central kitchen and be redistributed to serve the underprivileged communities in Hong Kong.

Currently, Food Angel rescues 35 tonnes of edible surplus food each week, producing over 15,000 nutritious meals and helps distribute over 9,000 other meals and food packs daily. The support from our food donors is most important to our operation.

Food Smart Buddy
To promote the culture of cherishing food and increase public participation in food donation activities, Food Angel launched the first smart food donation programme - “Food Smart Buddy” in Hong Kong, which aims to educate and cultivate the community to donate surplus food in an interactive and innovative way.  The food collected will support Food Angel to prepare meals and food packs for those in need.
Under this programme, food donation machine and food donation box will be set up at various locations, such as shopping malls, commercial buildings, housing estates and schools, paired with a mobile app to facilitate food donation from the general public. 

How to Participate?

The smart machine can be activated with a QR code (for members), or Octopus Card (for both members and non-members) to donate food, and the app will indicate the weight of donated food instantly, and visually convert the weight to the equivalent quantity of meals or food packs that we can produce with the donation. The smart machine can capture the accumulated weight of food donated by members and food donation record made within a year. It also has monetary donation and photo-taking functions.

Location of Food Donation Machines:

• 1/F., Yue Man Square, Kwun Tong (11 Jan to 9 Jul)
• G/F., Olympian City 1, Tai Kok Tsui (14 Feb to 30 Jun)

Location of Food Donation Boxes:

Sino Group's Residence Clubhouse (Residents only):

  • Serenity Park II, Tai Po (21 Apr - 8 May)
  • Avon Park, Fanling (25 Apr - 8 May)
