The Charterhouse Causeway Bay Supports Foodlink Recycle Activities to Fight Hunger
As part of our sustainability program, The Charterhouse Causeway Bay is pleased to announce our participation with Foodlink Foundation by donating surplus food to the charitable organizations in regular basis.
The Charterhouse Causeway Bay started its co-operation with Foodlink, a charity organization founded in 2009, with the mission to mitigate hunger, fight poverty and foster nutritional wellness by reducing food wastage in hotels and restaurants in Hong Kong. As a partner, The Charterhouse Causeway Bay donates surplus food from buffet table and staff canteen regularly while Foodlink will organize and deliver the food to people in need. Through continuous collaborations since July 2013, we have donated approximately 870kg of surplus food and served an average of 1,800 meals to the needy.
Mr Bernard Rodrigues, the General Manager of The Charterhouse Causeway Bay, said, "We fully support the food recycle activities organized by Foodlink. On one hand, this meaningful event can help the underprivileged in the society; on the other hand, it can help to remind the public to treasure food as well as to reduce food wastage."
The Charterhouse Causeway Bay will continue its procedures to reduce food waste at the source by carrying out more accurate demand forecasts and different internal training program. Besides the hotel’s Green committee are all working continuously towards a more sustainable future by protecting and preserving natural resources and minimizing our impact on the environment.
