通過參與綠色時刻的“Bun跑”活動一起來消除食物浪費和飢餓吧! * Join us to fight food waste & hunger through Green Hour's Bun Run!

About this event

為幫助減少香港的食物浪費問題,綠色時刻舉辦 「Bun 跑」活動,每星期到合作的麵包店及餐廳收集多餘的食物,並轉發給深水埗及油尖旺區一眾長者、露宿者及低收入家庭。我們歡迎各界人士參與「Bun 跑」,逢星期四回收送暖,為社區注入正能量。

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 week 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 DO WE ORGANISE BUN RUNS?

香港現時每日棄置到堆填區的廚餘量多達3,600噸!作為推動可持續發展的組織,綠色時刻難以無視香港的食物浪費問題。因此,繼「垃圾跑」取得成功後,我們決定每星期進行「Bun 跑」。

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 decided to organise 'Bun Runs' across multiple evenings every week.

收集剩餘食物並不是什麼新鮮事,但「Bun 跑」連繫志同道合的義工,讓大家為社會出一分力的同時,結識新朋友。這也能成為有趣的團隊建設活動!

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!

提醒:

我們建議你準備乾淨並可重複使用的手提包,以免製造不必要的塑膠垃圾。請小心地將剩食放置到你的手提包中。另外,我們亦建議你穿上舒適的服裝。(請保留收據並將其與食品一起帶到我們的中心,以方便記錄收集到的食物數量。)

REMINDER:

We encourage you to bring your own clean reusable carrier bags to avoid unnecessary plastic bags. Please also pack the food items CAREFULLY into your carrier bags.

Please keep the receipt and bring it with the food items to our centre. We need to keep record of the amount of food collected.

Please wear comfortable clothes as some locations are not necessarily close to public transport.

We will only collect food surplus that is roughly 2-3 days before the date of best before communicated with the donors. We will make sure they are distributed within a day after collection.

2. 綠色時刻如何派發及處理剩餘食物? HOW DOES DISTRIBUTION TAKE PLACE?
