" I'm excited to join the Millennium Fellowship becasue it will allow me to stay close to the causes I'm passionate about and to learn how to magnify our impact. The Fellowship will fill our gaps in professional knowledge and expertise relating to running a social impact project and at the same time, through conversations with like-minded Fellows from around the world, broaden our perspectives on what's possible. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Catering Care
Catering Care (齊餉計劃) is an HKU-based student initiative that aims to build a resilient and sustainable food partnership between the catering industry, food-insecure populations, and public sponsorship. The project finds its roots in a fervent desire to support the vulnerable population in the immediate neighbourhood around HKU as well as campus restaurants, both of which have been severely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Our project functions on a mutually supportive triad. Catering Care collects donations and fundings from “public sponsorship”. With these funds, we purchase meals from “participating caterers”, thus helping them to generate more revenue to tide through this difficult period. We then provide these meals for free to the “food-insecure population” through relevant NGOs. Since its piloting stage in September, we have donated 490 meals from our campus restaurants Bijas and UDeli to over 100 beneficiaries of St. Barnabas Society and Home. We are now expanding to various new initiatives, including but not limited to food coupons, community kitchen meal preparation and recipe design and community support.
