South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Michelin-starred chefs join Feeding Hong Kong to help the underprivileged ahead of Lunar New Year” – below is their description.
Eight Michelin-starred chefs have teamed up with the charity organisation Feeding Hong Kong to help pack festive food bags for the underprivileged ahead of Lunar New Year. The chefs also experienced what life is like for many low-income families who live in cramped, subdivided flats, as they cooked in tight spaces with limited ingredients. According to the charity, around 3,600 tonnes of food waste ends up in Hong Kong’s landﬁlls every year, while more than one million people in the city live below the poverty line and struggle to afford nutritious meals.

In This Story: Hong Kong
Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.
Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
