The Santa Sack campaign is back!
Fill a bag and feed a family in need this Christmas

At Feeding Hong Kong we are working extra hard to share the festive spirit and create a Christmas that everyone can enjoy. We currently support over 60 welfare centres in Hong Kong with regular food donations and with your help, we hope to be able to drop-off an extra special delivery to them this holiday season!

What is the Santa Sack campaign?

The Santa Sack campaign was launched in 2012 and the main aim is to provide extra food parcels to people in need in Hong Kong during the festive period. Our generous supporters helped us to deliver 3,000 Santa Sacks that benefited almost 8,000 people in need over the last three years. Our target for 2015 is to deliver 2,000 Santa Sacks for individuals in need and 20 Holiday Hampers for charity kitchens. It is a tall order but with your help, we can achieve it!

How can I get involved?

Did you know 1 in 5 people in Hong Kong live in poverty? Let us work together to brighten our fellow citizens’ lives in these easy ways:

Festive Food Drive: to support our Santa Sacks Campaign with food donations, simply complete the registration form and email it to communications@feedinghk.org. We will send you the resources pack, including instructions showing how to set up a food donation point, a promotional poster with the shelf-stable items that are most needed and advice about how to arrange deliveries. We will sort the food items and deliver them to people in need before Christmas Day.

The perfect Christmas present: for foodies, students on a budget and busy high flyers. The 2015 edition of our Recipe Collection ‘Fast Food’ is the ideal gift for them all. It includes nutritious recipes that can be made in 30 minutes or less, for $10 per portion and with limited equipment. Buy the cookbook here. All proceeds will support our Chefs in the Community Programme.

Join the Christmas Bread Run: we are preparing a very special Bread Run on Tuesday 22 December. Invite family, friends and colleagues and get into the festive spirit. Please register here if you would like to be a bread rescuer.

• Donate your Christmas decorations: help us to to bring extra seasonal sparkle to people in need! Calling for local businesses, companies and individuals to donate new or gently used Christmas decorations to Feeding Hong Kong. Please contact communications@feedinghk.org for more information.

Spread the love: Share this information, like us on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and help us fight hunger and food waste in Hong Kong!.

With your help, we will continue to provide food support to those in need in our city. Our charity partners include shelters for the homeless, senior day centres, children’s homes and other non-profit programmes that provide food to the hungry.

Thanks for your interest in food banking!
