Eat To-Gather

In this programme, non-local students will enjoy a homey meal with a local host family to have an authentic taste of the family life in Hong Kong. Beyond the dining table, non-local students will also have the chance to engage in deeper cultural exchange with the host family through different gatherings and outings. Local students are invited to join as “foodmates” of the non-locals in these family meals and gatherings to help promote their integration into the Chinese culture and adaptation to life in Hong Kong.
