Project Introduction

As the COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges to the Hong Kong community and led to growing unemployment and underemployment, with rising demand for food assistance. To support the local community, The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust approved a HK$240 million donation to launch the “Jockey Club Food Assistance Programme”, in conjunction with six NGOs and CSR partners, to provide transitional and timely relief for over 70,000 people facing financial hardship through a variety of innovative initiatives.

The Programme encompasses four initiatives to expand the reach and cater to different needs:

Automated Food Dispenser Service
With automated food dispensers in various districts, this innovative initiative allows for flexible collection of cook-chill meals supporting those with irregular working hours for up to a year.
Food Pack Service
Catering to eligible persons and families, this service offers food packs containing rice, noodles, canned food and, supermarket vouchers for eight weeks. The food packs can be tailored to different nutritional needs, such as for the elderly, toddlers and ethnic minorities.
Hot Meal Service
The service offers free hot meals for individuals and families living in underprivileged environments, for up to a year, prepared by community kitchens.
Food Express Service
Leveraging the established online food delivery platform of our CSR partners, this eight-week service provides meals to those affected by the novel coronavirus, in particular, for homebound persons or families that cannot cook at home.
