One night, my friend and I occasionally witnessed how supermarkets throw away loads of edible food like bread, mochi, sushi, soya milk and juice etc. We were dumbfounded - we all "knew" that there is food waste in Hong Kong, but never imagined how serious and outrageous the real-life situation can be.
We wanted to save those food so we did a dumpster diving. However, the food is way more than we could consume so we brought the food to the homeless. We also took some pictures and share the experience with our friends. Our friends were also angry about how wasteful is our city is. We all desperately wanted to do something about it, and that is how we began our organization - The Leftovers.
