CUHK Mooncake for Charity

30 JUN 2016

"CUHK Mooncake" introduced by the University for the second year, can be ordered now.  This mooncake is a delicious festive delicacy which signifies CUHK’s commitment to serving the community.

The University has joined hands again with Caritas La Vie, a local social enterprise, to produce CUHK Mooncake. It is made of low sugar white lotus seed paste with two yolks in Caritas La Vie’s baking workshop, through which job opportunities are provided for the recovering mentally disabled.

CUHK Mooncake is sold in boxes of four. For each box sold, the CUHK‧Care service team will deliver a free mooncake to the elderly in Shatin or Taipo before the Mid-Autumn Festival. Last year, when CUHK Mooncake was introduced for the first time, it received an overwhelming response from CUHK staff, alumni and students. Many of those who bought the CUHK Mooncake donated all their purchased mooncakes and brought them to the elderly. As a result, more than 1,000 pieces of CUHK Mooncake were delivered to the elderly.

Moreover, profit gained from the mooncake sales will be donated to support the I‧CARE Programme of the University, which facilitates CUHK students’ initiatives in community services.

Act now to order this special university branded Mooncake and share the festive joy with others!
