FoodEver Award

In support of the HKSAR Government’s policy and initiatives on food waste reduction, the Hong Kong Women Professionals & Entrepreneurs Association (HKWPEA), in collaboration with the Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC), has been awarded a grant from the Environment and Conservation Fund to launch an 18-month food waste reduction programme, entitled “FoodEver WasteNever Programme”. The Programme aims to encourage the community to join forces to reduce food waste. It is designed to provide a platform to motivate community action for food waste reduction. Through education campaigns and community engagement initiatives, the Programme recognises 300 plus Hong Kong entities as showcases for effective food waste management.

 

PolyU received Diamond Class of FoodEver Award

As one of the signees of the Food Wise Charter in the Food Wise Hong Kong Campaign, PolyU has taken serious measures to drive food waste reduction and recycling on campus. All major caterers on campus as well as catering outlets at student halls have joined the ‘Food Waste Source Separation and Recycling Program’ since 2013, giving food waste a ‘second life’ by having them recycled into useful feed and fertilizers. The University has also identified opportunities to promote green dining habits. For more green initiatives, please click here to visit our GreenLiving@PolyU page.

In 2016, PolyU received the Diamond Class of FoodEver Award.
