"I used to eat two meals a day to keep my living costs down. Now, I eat more regularly and I feel healthier. The Hotmeal Canteen is also a place I can go to meet friends,” says Mr Mu.

The first CLP Hotmeal Canteen was opened in Sham Shui Po in September 2011, in partnership with The Hong Kong Council of Social Service and Baptist Oi Kwan Social Service, serving up dietician-supervised meals to the underprivileged for only HK$10. Its services have expanded to include job counselling, health advice, exercise sessions and a meal delivery service for the disabled and chronically ill.

In September 2014, CLP Hotmeal Canteen expanded to Kwai Tsing and Kwun Tong in partnership with Po Leung Kuk, providing nutritious breakfasts, lunches and dinners at discounted prices to people in need, in particular elderly people with little social support.


“I enjoy soup, but I can no longer make it myself as I have my back pains. The CLP Hotmeal Canteen not only lets me enjoy delicious soup again but also gives me the chance to meet up with new friends,” says Auntie Ho.

As of 2015, the total amount donated by CLP to the three Hotmeal Canteens was more than HK$2.8 million. Donations from CLP customers and other members of the public to the canteen in Sham Shui Po amounted to more than HK$2.4 million.

Today, the three Hotmeal Canteens serve around 10,000 meals a month to people in need in the Sham Shui Po, Kwai Tsing and Kwun Tong areas.
