Background

There are many bread wasted when bakeries close everyday, while there are many people need food. Everyone can make some changes by collecting the unsold bread and deliver them to those in need. That's why we initiate this project and call for action.

What we have

We will provide collection and distribution guideline to volunteer. Volunteer will know when and where to collect the bread and how to distribute to needy. New volunteer will be led by experienced volunteer to follow the whole procedure.

Why this is important

Cherishing food and helping others is our goal. This project can reduce food waste and help those in need directly. We need volunteer efforts to keep the project sustainable.

What we do

The Food Commons Foundation is a tax-exempted charity that aims to take action against the problem of excessive leftover food in the society leading to a series of undesirable consequences. The primary goal is to collect edible food from the source of food waste (such as markets, retailers, etc.) to reduce environmental pollution caused by food waste and reduce the load on landfills. On the other hand, we redistribute the food, share it with different people in the community, and look for more feasible "food upcycling solutions." By linking social welfare organizations or environmental organizations, government, and industrial and commercial sectors from the society, the Foundation will make continuous efforts to solve the problem of food waste, reducing waste, helping people, and creating green job opportunities.
