HKFoodWorks is a registered charity dedicated to sustainable food futures, leading the way through research and community action for a hopeful tomorrow.
The way we live in Hong Kong consumes the natural resources of 4.2 earths. Food holds the key to change – from the way we eat to the way we waste; from the way we produce, to the way we distribute, we can make our urban food system less wasteful and our city more sustainable.
Hong Kong throws away 3200 tonnes of food a day. Reducing food waste is 800 times cheaper, and 7 times more energy efficient than recycling, which makes food rescue one of the true keystones of sustainable development.
Our community programme Breadline has saved over 300,000 loaves of bread, serving up over 150,000 breakfasts while preventing 366 tonnes of ghg emissions and 1.6 million gallons of water from needlessly being wasted.
We invest in our communities by raising awareness and empowering action. We educate younger generations through workshops and public talks, and continually undertake research to improve food security for the city.
