Chinlink International Holdings Limited (“Chinlink") and its subsidiaries (collectively the “Group") successfully launched a voluntary activity “Bake to Feed" on 9 May 2015. As a sponsor of this activity, Chinlink hoped to reach out to those in need and promote the environmental message of treasuring resources on planet and reducing waste, in order to play a contributing role in the sustainable development of the community.
The activity was supported by Food Angel, a social welfare organization which is the first food rescue and food assistance program launched in 2011 by Bo Charity Foundation. With the mission of "WASTE NOT, HUNGER NOT", Food Angel aims at helping the food needy in the community and educating the next generation as a long-term goal. In the activity, Chinlink Corporate Volunteer Service Team made cookies by using flour, butter and other ingredients collected from restaurants and fully demonstrated team spirit. In addition to delivering Chinlink's love and cheers to the elderlies, Chinlink showed its commitment as a responsible corporate citizen and its volunteer team morale.
As a responsible corporate citizen, Chinlink supports charity activities in actions and promotes the culture of caring community and environment. In Hong Kong, 970,000 population are now living below the standard of poverty line, 1 out of 4 children is suffering from hunger and 1 out of 3 elderlies cannot obtain the essential nutritions fully, while there are 3,600 tons of food wasted or discarded in Hong Kong per day. Our cookies, which were made by the edible surplus food, together with hot meal boxes from Food Angel will be delivered to deprived elderly for free.
Through our sponsorship and participation in this activity, the Group wishes to support Food Angel's hot meal program via our direct actions, and to disseminate the green message of valuing food resources and reducing food waste to our colleagues and the community. Chinlink hopes that by helping needy and serving community can fulfil the corporate social responsibility and establish a good corporate culture within the Group.
