We partnered with St. James Settlement to help promote a special service for the elderly who can't chew normal foods – Graceful Meal. Often when people age or have a stroke, they have difficulty masticating and swallowing, making pureed food their only option. Graceful Meal offers a more attractive, enjoyable, dignified eating experience with nutritious foods that are easy to swallow, taste delicious, and look like a special delicacy.
Committed to providing the best possible eating experience to everyone in Hong Kong, we organised a one-day programme to promote awareness of Graceful Meal and the importance of care and dignity for elderly people with special eating needs. The event was directed at volunteers who work with the elderly, who were invited to join a learning session with a dietician and a Graceful Meal preparation workshop with a chef. Finally, the group paid a visit to a care home in Hong Kong to deliver Graceful Meals and help the residents at lunchtime.
