Cooking For A Cause (CFC) was started 5 years ago by a small group of passionate CDNIS students towards the refugee issue in Hong Kong. Since then, the club has grown to 50+ dedicated members who bring positive and innovative initiatives to CFC. Twice a month, students from Grades 7 to 12 design, organise, plan, prepare and serve meals to more than 50 refugees from all around the world such as Egypt, Israel and Eastern Europe at a soup kitchen at Christian Action in Chungking Mansions, Tsim Sha Tsui.
Not only has CFC established itself as a valuable Upper School club, student are also developing fundraising and marketing initiatives. In 2017, CFC opened its first ever booth as a club during the Family Fun Fair, raising a promising fund from selling milkshakes and smoothies to contribute to our service for HK refugees. CFC also held a successful Christmas-themed bake sale in December 2017 on the 6th floor bridge to raise awareness for the refugee issue and CFC as a club.
In the near future, CFC plans to host a kitchen drive to collect kitchen utensils to improve the cooking out process and environment at Christian Action for the refugees. The club is also planning more fundraising events such as an Easter-themed bake sale in the upcoming year to continue it contribution to the wider local and international community.
