Green Hour has teamed up with bakeries to help reduce food waste across the city. We welcome people from all backgrounds to join us every week for our 'Bun Run'.
Every volunteers register to collect surplus bread and other food items from bakeries and various other stores around closing time. The bread is then distributed amongst those in need across the city, helping to fight food waste and have a positive impact on the community at the same time!
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.
