WOW! It’s been 10 MONTHS since Home Kong Kitchen got on a roll and started making serious dough! We’ve spent nearly a year turning our kitchens into mini-Hiroshimas and baking a difference to feed Hong Kong’s homeless! 🇭🇰
Our initiative started as a response to news reports that food waste charities were struggling to feed the homeless during the 3rd Wave of the pandemic. So what started out as the Baker’s Dirty Half Dozen began to bake our own and donate it to Breadline in weekly food drives.
As more and more bighearted Homekongers have rallied to our cause, Home Kong Kitchen has risen. We now bake, collect and deliver homemade breads, bagels and muffins directly to people living on the streets, in unlicensed shelters and refuges most days!
This Easter,Home Kong Kitchen‘s bionic baking community delivered dozens of afternoon teas to homeless shelters and refuges across Hong Kong! Props toAlana Hofor baking the scones, Chriz Lim for the lemon cakes, Raquel Ate for the giant banana cake and our originalBaker’s Dirty Half Dozenfor the hot cross buns! Not forgetting our amazing community of artists @ Mental Ideas for their handcrafted notes and inspiring artwork!
Besides our regular weeklydeliveriesto unlicensed shelters andhomeless charityImpactHK, Home Kong Kitchenis now deliveringfree breakfaststo anybody who needs it anywhere in Hong Kong! If you and your family are struggling to put food on the table, or if you’re from a refuge or shelter that has not yet sampled our baking and would like to, please take a moment toregister!
We have lots ofeventslined up over the summer, including baking workshops in collaboration withBreadline@ Refugee Union, a monthlyPicnic Project, a novelty cookbook and our first Bijou Pâtisserie, where you can order our baking! We can’t promise it will be the best you’ve ever tasted, but we CAN promise that every cent we make is donated directly to homeless charities!
The Year of The Ox is upon us and to celebrateHome Kong Kitchenwill be baking and serving cream teas for refugees @Refugee Union in Sai Yin Pun THIS SATURDAY (Feb 13) from 2pm! Thanks to our collaborators @ Breadline for arranging this opportunity for us to mark the Lunar New Year in our own little way: the Cornish way!
Cream teas have been steeped in Chinese mythology and tradition ever since 400BC when Confucius tried one, overdid the clotted cream and sagely proclaimed “You are what you… think I’m gonna barf!!!” (His publicist later shortened the quote to “You are what you think.”) Here’s hoping the Year of The Ox will be a lot more creamy and a lot less plaguey than its Ratty predecessor!
If you would like to help me serve teas to refugees on Sat or wish to contribute baking or other gifts of cooking utensils, oils, pasta, rice, old clothes or laptops/ phones/ tablets capable of running the Zoom app (for refugee kids to do home learning), please fill in the form below! 💜
Kung Fat Hei Choi & Sun Tai Kin Hong! 🐂
Incidentally, I did consider serving cow pies instead of cream teas, but living in such close proximity to these feral beauties is enough to turn even the most un-woke meat-stinking Gen Xer vegan!
Also, I’ve got no idea how to bake cow pies. Is it flour, eggs, clotted cream, bananas?
Last month, Iannounced my pie in the sky intention of making, collecting and distributing 100Christmas Gift Socksto the homeless! Thanks to the amazing generosity and support of bighearted Homekongers, I can only ever find one sock and that target was nearly trebled!!!
Thanks to everyone who donated their time, energy, creativity and baking to Home Kong Kitchen in 2020! It’s because of you that HKK is collecting and delivering bread, bagels, muffins and other gifts to homeless people living in unlicensed shelters and refuges most days! We are also making weekly deliveries toImpact HKevery Friday!
