Care Food Cooking Competition 2024The Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS) is organising the 6th Care Food Cooking Competition. We invited caregivers as contestants for the first time in our Care Food Cooking Competition 2023, bringing the concept of Care Food into the community and integrate Care Food into daily life. 

This year, we invite caregivers and foreign domestic helpers, with the theme of “Travel with Care Food”, allowing caregivers and foreign domestic helpers to turn the favorite and unforgettable food of dysphagia individuals during their trip to Hong Kong or around the world into Care Food, in hope that people with dysphagia recalling the joyful moments they had during their journey. 

Hong Kong is a city of delicacies, where you can enjoy different cuisines in every district. However, people with dysphagia only have a few options for dining out. Through this competition, we hope to provide caregivers and foreign domestic helpers with a deeper understanding of Care Food-related knowledge so that people with dysphagia can have a taste of dishes of different styles. At the same time, promoting Care Food to the community, we envision people with dysphagia in various districts enjoying diverse delicacies from different places, so people from every district can enjoy delicious food.
