Food Angel provides meals to the Association’s elder families
The Association’s Chi Po Neighbourhood Elderly Centre cooperates with Food Angel in providing meals for underprivileged elders in Sham Shui Po, to reduce their financial stress.
The centre has been distributing frozen meals with rice, soup and a dish to the needy. On Fridays, elderly and their care-takers can enjoy the food in the centre, or take them back home. In view of the volatility of the epidemic, the centre has suspended dine-in services and offers takeaway only now. Needy is given meals twice a week, with three dishes each time. The centre distributes 90 packs of meal each time to lower the risk of infection of 30 elderly families by reducing the number of time visiting markets or restaurants.
Thanks to Food Angel for providing food to the elders on a regular basis. The offer does not only reduce their financial burden, but also provides a chance for them to know people and build social network.
