  •      After a year, members will be re-assessed by professional social workers and the eligible applicants may continue with the service.
  •      For food safety reasons, the service is only available to those who live in the designated service areas while cross-district applications will not be accepted.
  •      Members need to bring along the “food warmer bag” provided by the social service organization when they pick up the cook-chill meals each time to ensure food hygiene.

Remarks: Applicant families must obtain a functional refrigerator to store the frozen food items and equipment for reheating food (e.g. electric rice-cooker, microwave oven, wok, etc.).
