The program is offering snack packs at $250 each containing six healthy, wholesome snacks such as granola bars, nuts, dried fruits. The proceeds go towards supporting employment opportunities for people with disabilities and underprivileged elderly in Hong Kong.
How does Eat for Good make a difference?
- Intellectually Disabled adults can practise social skills through interacting with people outside of their social circles or comfort zone during through packing and delivering the snack packs to corporate offices.
- The corporate subscription ensures the soup will be delivered during a home visit in which volunteers spend quality time with the elderly, many of whom live alone with no nearby family.
- Through the power of volunteering, people can witness first hand the impact they are making through Eat For Good.
- Healthy snacks make a healthy team. Each snack packs contains organic, raw, gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, fair trade and vegan healthy range.
Eat for Good supports both the elderly community through soup deliveries and intellectually disabled adults through the snack pack production. Pictured: Bernie with elderly member of the community, Wong Por Por, at her home on a soup run
