It will provide free meals and supplies to the homeless.
Convenience store chain, 7-Eleven, said its ‘Sik Tak Fan La’ Charity Programme will raise HK$2m to feed homeless and needy communities in Hong Kong.
This is also in partnership with Pei Ho Counterparts, the chain’s charity partner where collected money goes to free meals and supplies for elderly and homeless people.
Recent Hong Kong Poverty Situation Report showed that there are over 580,000 senior citizens in poverty, including 210,000 who live alone.
Under the programme, HK$0.5 will be donated to Pei Ho Counterparts for each designated 7-SELECT meal box sold. It will run for a year and applies to designated 7-SELECT meal boxes excluding pasta items.
“To show our gratitude for their generosity, customers will receive a 'Sik Tak Fan La' thank you receipt every time they buy a 7-SELECT meal box,” said 7-Eleven in a statement.
For “Double Up Day,” the 11th day of each month, the donation will be doubled from HKD0.5 to HKD1 for every designated 7-SELECT meal box sold.
The 7-SELECT meal boxes include Coconut Curry Chicken Rice, Rice with Curry Chicken in Hainanese Style, Steamed Rice with Pork Ribs & Chicken Feet, Steamed Rice with Dried Squid & Pork Patty, Baked Pork Chop & Tomato with Fried Rice, Yeung Chow Fried Rice, Spicy Eggplant with Minced Pork Rice, and Rice with Pork & Preserved Vegetable.
