Link-Pro Leads: Food Angel Volunteer Event

Part of our company’s objective is providing high-quality service to help our client meet their business goals. While the business setting is a platform for helping others, service goes beyond consulting and assurance. On Friday, 28 June, Link-Pro summer interns Angel, Zarina, and Jack experienced first-hand the power of volunteer work. Throughout the day, they helped prepare meals for the Hong Kong underprivileged community at Food Angel.

What is Food Angel?

Food Angel is a charity program that rescues surplus food from the food industry and converts it into fresh meals for those in need. Food Angel uses strict and sanitary protocol to ensure healthy and quality food for Hong Kong’s underprivileged community. Each day, food Angel prepares 9,000 meals for those in need all while using high-quality food that would normally go to waste.

For Angel, Zarina, and Jack, the trip to Food Angel’s Chai Wan location was a fun and productive time. They arrived in the morning, were explained the rules, and in under two hours prepared thousands of meals. Each volunteer has a different role at Food Angel, providing the meal contents with care. Jack described his experience by saying, “I was very impressed with the efficiency and quality of the food. The assembly-line format made it possible to continuously produce meals. Today showed our responsibilities go beyond accounting services, and I think Food Angel is a great compliment to Link-Pro.” The group was happy to connect to other volunteers and Food Angel workers. They all worked together to support an important initiative in Hong Kong.

How to Get Involved with Food Angel

Volunteering at Food Angel is accessible for all people over the age of 16 who are either Hong Kong residents or have a working visa. There are three different activities that volunteers can sign up for: Prepare Veggie and Food Packs, Prepare Meals, and Serve Meals. Our group prepared meals in the AM time slot. For this task, make sure to bring a smile and be ready to work hard. Food Angel is open Monday-Friday and encourages group participation during the enrollment process. Link-Pro has established a great relationship with this assistance program, and it is the perfect opportunity for any company looking to aid the underprivileged.
