FOODSPORT is a social enterprise who strives to promote healthy living to the community. By combining FOOD with SPORT, FOODSPORT organizes regular community sporting activates to encourage the community to become more active, at the same time, converting all burnt calories into food units for donation to the needed ones in Hong Kong, making every drop of sweat count for addressing hunger.
The primitive usually fished by taking kayak in ancient times.
Kayak was one of the survival tool. Until now, kayak is one of the most popular watersport in the world.
Imagine that you are in the center of the sea and taking a sunbath on the kayak. What a chill moment!
FOODSPORT is pleased to collaborate with SUPWAYHK to organize ”Kayak Ocean Bath“ calorie drive activity.
SUPWAYHK Instructors will provide a kayak basic skill and safety training before heading out into Ting Kok mangrove,
to learn about the mangrove ecology, and open up your mind and senses from the ultimate Ocean Bath experience.
“麒麟怪怪”, a local shop promoting environment ecosystem, will share some farming experiences with us.
Same as previous community activities, all burnt calories will be collected and donated to our seasonal beneficiary
"Food Grace". Let’s move and exercise for hunger together.
SUPWAYHK founded by two water sports enthusiasts. They organize beach clean up activities regularly hoping to raise public awareness on ecological environment of Hong Kong and connect people with the nature. More details : www.instagram.com/supway_naturehk
《ABOUT BENEFICIARY - Food Grace》
Established in 2009, when Hong Kong was experiencing the financial tsunami, the economic downturn and the rising unemployment rate made the life of a group of deprived people even worse. At the same time, we found that a lot of food was discarded from the supply chain. Food Grace adopted a simple and direct method: when collecting vegetables in the Tai Po market, we used trolleys to greet each food stall, and tried to encourage them to donate leftover food and donate it to unemployed workers in Tai Po District.
Today, Food Grace have not only established a systematic supply chain for recycling and distributing food, and continue to benefit the grassroots through leftover food, but also take the promotion of food cherishing for all people as our responsibility, and use the strategy of "recycling, education, and advocacy" to help solve local kitchen problems. I question. More details : www.foodgrace.org.hk
