Wada Bento fights COVID-19 together with healthcare workers and elderly people
Hit hard by the COVID-19 fifth wave, healthcare workers are not only risking their own lives to save others but could wear themselves out sometimes because of an irregular diet. Cyberport incubatee Wada Bento develops a patented high-tech hot-chain vending machine in the Cyberport campus. And this meal solution has recently arrived at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. In addition to the benefits from lower human contact and e-payment, hospital staff can enjoy faster and freshly heated meals with only a few simple steps! They can then try to rest and recharge during meal breaks. Wada Bento also offers a special discount to support and cheer up the staff during the fifth wave of COVID-19.
With support from donors in the Good Food Movement, Wada Bento has teamed up with DayDayCook and will provide 15,000 meal boxes for free to stay-at-home senior citizens living in Shek Kip Mei and Shum Shui Po. These meal boxes will be delivered directly to their homes with the assistance of the Hong Kong Young Women's Christian Association and Hong Kong Christian Service from March to early May.
As the incubator of Wada Bento, Cyberport is pleased to witness how Wada Bento has grown beyond Hong Kong and contributed to society in this challenging time. Learn more: https://wadabentotech.com/
Jason Chen, founder of Wada Bento (Kamakura Foods Limited) has lived in Japan for years, and so decided to bring the authentic, the fun and tasty Japanese Bento experience to Hong Kong. He has developed the Wada Bento vending machine by using the hot-chained technology to provide delicious and hygienic food for local office workers. The company is the first to be granted a hot bento vending machine license by the Hong Kong Government. At present, Wada Bento is available at nine locations covering various commercial districts, including Cyberport, Science Park, InnoCentre, and PCCW Engineering Centre.
