Event description
3,600 tonnes of food finds its way to landfill EACH DAY! Join us to fight food waste & support the community through Green Hour's Bun Run!

About this Event

綠色時刻與麵包店及餐廳合作,幫助減少整個城市的食物浪費。 我們歡迎各種背景的人士加入我們每星期的「Bun 跑」。

每個星期四義工於麵包店及餐廳關閉時收集多餘的食物,並將它們帶到我們的服務中心。一眾義工然後將會分成小組,把收集得來的食物派送給深水埗及油尖旺區一眾長者、露宿者及低收入家庭。我們以此減少食物浪費及為社區帶來正面加量!

Green Hour has teamed up with restaurants & 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 Thursday volunteers register to collect surplus food items from bakeries at closing time and bring them to our centre. The food items are 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!

為什麼「Bun跑」? WHY WE DO WE ORGANISE 'BUN RUNS'?

綠色時刻作為一個致力減輕垃圾堆田區垃圾數量的組織,難以無視香港每天進入堆田區的3,600噸食物垃圾。

在垃圾跑取得成功後,我們決定每星期進行「Bun 跑」。

收集剩餘食物並不是什麼新鮮事,但是藉着大家一起行動,絕對是結識新朋友,同時一起做有意義的事情的愉快體驗。 這也能成為有趣的團隊建設活動!

Green Hour being an organisation that works to alleviate the ever growing amount of rubbish in our landfills, would be crazy to ignore the 3,600 tonnes of food waste entering landfills EVERY DAY in Hong Kong alone.

Due to the success of our plogging events, we have decided to organise 'Bun Runs' across multiple evenings every week.

Surplus food collection isn't anything new, but when we work together in a group, it's a great way to meet new people and do something meaningful together. It's a fun team building activity as well, if there weren't already enough reasons to join!

關於活動當晚 ON THE EVENING OF THE RUN:

我們將於晚上7:30於富昌邨富良樓居民服務中心集合及分配物資。

義工們將會分成小組,跟隨隊長前往不同地點派發食物給露宿者。

我們將於晚上10時左右完成派發。

注意事項:

  • 請帶上環保袋。分配物資時請將食物小心地裝入您自己的手提袋中。
  • 請勿拍攝露宿者。
  • 請穿上輕便舒適的衣服。活動需要短暫步行。
  • 請在活動期間與隊員一同行事,切勿離隊。

We will meet at 7:30pm at the Residential Community Centre at Fu Leung House, Fu Cheong Estate to gather and pick up food surplus collected earlier.

Volunteers will then be split into teams and follow team leaders to distribute items to homeless people in the community.

After the distribution, we will gather back at around 10pm.

Reminders:

  • We encourage you to bring your own carrier bags in case. Please also pack the food items CAREFULLY into your own carrier bags.
  • Please do not take photos when visiting the homeless.
  • Please wear comfortable clothes as we will do some walking.
  • Please follow the team closely throughout the event.
