Feed the Hungry of Hong Kong

[This post is in support of a great cause - Feeding Hong Kong - using their words]

Every day in Hong Kong, 3200 tonnes of food are sent to landfill. At the same time, 1 in 5 people are living below the poverty line struggling to get 3 nutritious meals a day. Project #3200 aims to counter the balance by challenging the city to come together for the biggest food drive ever.

If we made a collective effort, could we donate more food than we waste?

This September, we have an ambitious project to coincide with Hunger Action Month in the USA, and we would like to invite you to play a role. This project aims to counter the balance in a big way - to see if through the course of the month we can collect more food than we waste.  All food donations collected through the campaign will be redistributed via the FHK charity network to grassroots charities feeding people in need in our community.

Our request for support is simple: make a pledge on our website (, follow us on social media (Facebook, Twitter and YouTube) and help us spread the word about "Project3200" and encourage your followers to consider a food donation in September.

Simply post, share and tweet on August 29th, 2012 and let your commitment be heard!

Feeding America has created a touching video, called "Hungry Kate: the Girl with the Belly Ache" that reflects the state of the economy and outcome of job losses there.

They should team up with the innovative team at Flash Food Recovery:
