Background

In this Volunteering Session, you are cordially invited to help us rescue fresh bread that would otherwise be thrown away, and bring it to the Feeding HK food bank in Yau Tong. We will help to deliver the rescued bread to the people in need across Hong Kong.Feeding Hong Kong is a local registered charity with a mission to reduce the amount of quality food sent to our city’s landfills and fight hunger in Hong Kong. We do this through delivering a B2B logistics service, which links food companies with surplus stock, to charities directly feeding those in need. Last year, through our partnerships with the food industry, we saved 578 tonnes of food from landfill. Instead, this was redistributed to 160 charity partners and supported 2.8 million meals for people in need.

What we have

Operation guideline and On-job training will be provided

Why this is important

This is Feeding HK's iconic event to help rescue surplus bread to feed needy people. With your help, we can bring hope to the underprivileged and fight against hunger while preventing food waste.
