EVENT DETAILS

 

In the past year, many lives have been affected. While people are less physical and mentally healthy due to limited social interaction and physical exercise, at the same time, the pandemic has also brought a huge impact to the economy. The unemployment rate has continued to rise, causing unemployment and hunger programs at the grassroots levels.

 

In response to the urgent need, this year’s "Food Salvager-Urban Adventure Challenge 2021", organized by social enterprise FOODSPORT, will be going VIRTUAL in April 2021, allowing the participants to participate the event and exercise for hunger at any time and day within the set period, to donate calories and raise food for our beneficiary "Hong Kong Dog Rescue" and "Foodlink Foundation", providing food assistance to the people and shelter animals in need.

Beside the calorie donation, the proceeds of the event, after deduction of the event operating costs, will go to "FOODSPORT Community Sport" & "Food Assistance" programs, enables FOODSPORT to sustain and expand our community calorie drive programs in Hong Kong.

Food Salvager Urban Adventure Challenge is a score orienteering event based in an urban area. By using the "UAC Mobile Application", participants may turn orienteering into a game as you explore around the city to find virtual Checkpoints and complete Missions to score points. The score of each Checkpoint and Mission varies depending on it's accessibility and difficulty. Those who achieve the required score within the limited game time will be awarded a Finisher Gift.

The theme of this year’s event is "Galaxy". A group of “Paws-tronaut” from the “Paws-Galaxy” has traveled to Earth, to search for a rare energy source called “The Foodseract”. According to the ancient data, the Foodseract contains an unlimited energy source that could power up the food production machines to solve the food shortage problem and save the Paws-tonaut’s home.

 

According to the report, the Foodseract is hidden somewhere in Stanley. The Paws-tronauts are now urge for the help from the Hong Kongers to join the searching party, within the set time, use the “UAC Mobile APP” to search for the CheckPoints to collect points and clues, and help the Paws-tronauts to find the Foodseract to address hunger once and for all.

HKDR
FL_logo_with_tagline.png

Hong Kong Dog Rescue (HKDR) was first set up as a Society in 2003 and gained full charity (non-profit) status in March 2005, registered charity S88#91/7544. It is run by founder, Sally Andersen, a handful of staff and hundreds of dedicated volunteers. What started as a one-person mission is now one of Hong Kong's most active and successful dog rescue and re-homing organisations, with the specific purpose of saving dogs and puppies from the Hong Kong Government’s Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) Animal Management Centres.


The organisation has cared for and re-homed more than 9,500 dogs while being largely funded by private donations, sales of HKDR merchandises and fundraising events. HKDR is proud to be a No Kill Organisation, meaning that no dog under its care will be euthanised for any reason other than when it is the only humane option.

HKDR’s 3R missions:
Rescue
Rehabilitate
Rehome


In the also our belief that education is one of the best ways to improve the likelihood of responsible, lifelong, dog ownership, and as such HKDR is actively expanding its community outreach programmes. HKDR volunteers work with schools and other groups to introduce the basics of dog behaviour and training as well as running monthly "Positive Partners" dog-human training courses.

Founded in 2001 and registered in 2009, Foodlink Foundation is a registered Hong Kong charity dedicated to fighting hunger, building self-sufficiency, and fostering nutritional wellness among those in need, while simultaneously reducing food wastage in hotels and F&B outlets in Hong Kong.

The vision at Foodlink Foundation is to ensure that every person in need has access to a hot, healthy meal. We collect safe-to-eat surplus food from F&B outlets all over the city and deliver to those in need. The role of Foodlink is to connect the supply to the demand as effectively as possible. The benefits are twofold - while reducing hunger we also reduce the pressure on our city's landfills.

 

Who Benefits?

Foodlink provides food to local charities that serve people in our community who are vulnerable to hunger. These include children, the elderly, low-income families, asylum seekers, and the homeless, among others.
