We are collaborating with chef Vicky of the Michelin-starred VEA to raise fund for malnourished children in Hong Kong! 

Michelin 1-star VEA Chef Vicky Chen and his wife Polly gave the first birthday gift to their daughter – they are raising money to give to those less fortunate instead of showering their daughter with gifts. 

An “Elizabeth Nutrition Fund”, will provide healthy food to underprivileged children in HK served by us.  For every donation of a minimum of HK$600, chef Vicky will give donors a jar of Japanese white strawberry jam with premium bird’s nest.  The HK$600 is enough for three months worth of fruit for a malnourished child, HK$1,200 for six months, and HK$2,400 for a year.  

Vicky will send a special savory item from his kitchen for those who contributed to the Funds with him.  “Every year, we’re going to do something different… when Elizabeth turns 18, she will have an entire childhood collection,” said Vicky.
