Youth Opportunity: Collect Bread for Redistribution to the Homeless (Wan Chai)
Description: Every day, 3,400 tonnes of food waste are sent to landfills in Hong Kong, while one in five people live in poverty and struggle to afford nutritious meals. Feeding Hong Kong bridges this gap by linking food companies with charities that redistribute surplus food. Their regular Bread Runs mobilizes volunteers to collect surplus fresh bread and other quality food from stores near closing time for bringing to collection points. These bread donations are redistributed the same night or first thing the following morning to local charities feeding people in need including shelters for the homeless, migrant workers, refugee support centres, children's homes and other NGOs. Volunteers will work in teams of two to support Feeding Hong Kong’s Thursday Bread Run and collect food items from a Hong Kong island Pret A Manger stores (Garden East, Wan Chai). These items will be delivered immediately to their Yau Tong warehouse. Remarks: All volunteers will receive a service reminder for this activity which must be followed exactly to ensure timely bread collection and handling guidelines are followed. All volunteers who attend this activity must be registered with HandsOn Hong Kong. If you wish to have a friend or family member join you on this activity, they must first register with Hands On and sign up for the activity. We are looking for volunteer leaders for FeedingHK's Warehouse session, if you live nearby or are willing to volunteer regularly on weekdays (once/ twice a month, you will be rotating shifts with other leaders in the team) and help out at the Warehouse Sessions, please email us via email@example.com with title: Applying VL of FeedingHK Warehouse
