The Neighbourhood Kitchen
The Neighbourhood Kitchen in the Shek Tong Tsui district of Hong Kong provides a safe place for local residents living in cramped sub-divided flats to cook and bond over food.
Together with Caritas Mok Cheung Sui Kun Community Centre, we opened our first Neighbourhood Kitchen in Shek Tong Tsui in September 2018. Aimed at residents living in sub-divided flats, the purpose of the Kitchen is to improve the living standards of low-income families. The Kitchen is furnished with professional food storage facilities and all the equipment needed to cook and bond over meals with family and friends. Supported by charity partners, local restaurants and businesses, fresh ingredients are provided to the Kitchen every day.
Since opening, we have welcomed approximately 50 registered members and received almost 900 drop-in visitors. In April 2019, we will be releasing the Neighbourhood Cookbook, a collection of stories, interviews and recipes from the Neighbourhood Kitchen community. All profits from sales will be donated to Caritas for the Neighbourhood Kitchen.
