Green Hour has teamed up with bakeries and other relevant partners to help reduce food waste across the city. We welcome people from all backgrounds to join us every week for our 'Bun Run'.

What is a 'Bun Run'?

Food was is a huge problem globally. In Hong Kong alone, 3,600 tons of food waste are sent straight to landfill every day.

Through community action, Green Hour holds weekly evening events, collecting surplus food from partnering organsations and directly distributing the collected items to those in need in the community.​

The Bread Run initiative is a community-driven effort aimed at reducing food waste and addressing food insecurity. This innovative program involves volunteers collecting unsold bread and baked goods from local bakeries and delivering them to organizations or individuals in need. The initiative not only ensures that surplus food does not go to waste but also provides a valuable resource to those experiencing food insecurity.

The Bread Run initiative operates on a simple yet effective model. Volunteers collaborate with local bakeries, forming partnerships that allow them to collect unsold bread at the end of the day. This bread is still fresh and edible but would otherwise be discarded. By rescuing these baked goods, the initiative prevents them from contributing to the growing issue of food waste.

Once the bread is collected, volunteers distribute it to various organizations, such as homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and community centers, where it can be shared with individuals facing food insecurity. The initiative aims to reach those who are unable to afford or access sufficient nutritious food, ensuring that they have access to a basic necessity.

The Bun Run initiative not only addresses immediate hunger but also raises awareness about the importance of reducing food waste. By involving volunteers, it creates opportunities for community engagement and fosters a sense of empathy and solidarity. It encourages individuals to take an active role in tackling food insecurity and promotes a more sustainable approach to food consumption.
