The The "Neighbourhood Kitchen" project was organised by Grosvenor together with Caritas Mok Cheung Sui Kun Community Centre. The Project aimed to elevate low-income families's living standards and develop a stronger sense of community in a unique public space. The Project was launched in September 2018 as an ‘open kitchen’ targeting dwellers of sub-divided flats, where people can connect through the bonding experience of sharing food and establishing a sense of community. The Project not only provided nutritious meals to low-income families, but also organised various volunteer activities and workshops, connecting neighborhoods with a community platform. The Neighbourhood Cookbook was published in April 2019 and included inspiring personal stories, recipes and photography from the community. The Neighbourhood Kitchen attracted media attention by improving the health and well-being of sub-divided flat dwellers and arousing public awareness to the sub-divided housing and related issues in Hong Kong.
The Outstanding Partnership Project Award was cancelled last year due to the pandemic.

Therefore, we are delighted to announce the Outstanding Partnership Project Award will open for application this year. Please refer to the requirements of participation.
