“Life was difficult several years ago when my husband suffered from a stroke. Since we have come to the Hotmeal Canteen to have our meals, we both eat healthier and feel less stressful financially. The Canteen is like our second home. I have introduced the Canteen to my neighbours who have similar needs. I volunteer at the canteen when I am free,” said Yuk Fung, one of the beneficiaries.

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 of $4 and $12 respectively to people in need, in particular elderly people with little social support.

I used to go to restaurants but the oily food gave me gout and I suffered from foot pain as a result. Now, I eat out at the Hotmeal Canteen. It keeps my living costs down and, most importantly, it provides me with nutritious meals that are good for my health,” says Mr Lau, one of the beneficiaries.

As of December 2017, CLP customers and the public donated more than HK$3.8 million for the canteen in Sham Shui Po.

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.
