Feeding Hong Kong
is a local charity set up in 2009 to collect, sort, store and distribute donated food to the Hong Kong community. Its prime purpose is to fight hunger in the city while at the same time reducing the amount of quality food that is wasted. The organisation also works to raise awareness about poverty, food insecurity and food waste in Hong Kong, as well as to promote healthy eating habits and nutrition in the most vulnerable communities.
The fourth Goodman Interlink Magic Mile Charity Ramp Run was held on 22 March 2015. The event is a 1-mile charity ramp run/walk up the Goodman Interlink ramp which is 15 levels high. The response to the event was overwhelming, with HK$1,000,000 raised, all of which was donated to Feeding Hong Kong.
The funds raised during the Magic Mile were given to Feeding Hong Kong to purchase of a ten-ton truck and to cover its on-road costs for two years. The truck will be used to deliver surplus bread and breakfasts to school children and will allow more schools to be added to the organisation’s Breakfast Club food run. It will also greatly improve delivery efficiency and maximise the reach of all of the charity’s initiatives. In addition to cash donations, Goodman staff will also volunteer to collect and deliver food for the charity.
