The Bread Run: Feeding thousands in Hong Kong since 2012

Every Tuesday and Thursday night, volunteers in Hong Kong rescue end-of-day surplus from bakeries and sandwich shops.

Established in 2012 by Feeding Hong Kong, a typical Bread Run can provide thousands of fresh bread loaves, buns, and sandwich rolls for those in need. The items are sorted, packed, and stored for the night at the Feeding Hong Kong warehouse and distributed to school clubs, crisis shelters, senior centers, and food programs for lunch the next day.
