Blessed Food - Short-term Food Assistance Service



Background

“Blessed Food” was born when the Welfare Council saw a surge in the demand for food assistance during the 2008 Global Financial Crisis, which hit Hong Kong, hard. After local authorities gave Blessed Food the green light, in 2009, it began providing assistance to residents of Tuen Mun with the help of government subsidies. It also worked with various Sheng Kung Hui groups and social welfare agencies to raise funds and resources to help establish a comprehensive service network.
