To address poverty issues that are of major public concern and have greater social impact, SIE Fund Task Force is looking for areas of unmet demands and service gaps where there is a need for greater co-ordination and collaboration to achieve result. In this regard, the Task Force has shown concern for food support service in Hong Kong.
At present, a number of organisations are running food support programmes to help people in need. However, it is observed that many operators, and the sector as a whole, are facing challenges which hinder the efficiency and effectiveness of the services. Such challenges include lack of information, unmatched supply and demand, as well as high running cost.
In light of this situation, the Task Force has decided to take on a flagship project which aims at enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of the overall food support service in Hong Kong, and to engage an intermediary to implement the initiative.
