We welcome people from all backgrounds to join us every week for our 'Bun Run'. Every Wednesday evening (starting from September the runs will be every Friday evening) a group of volunteers will run together in groups to collect surplus bread from bakeries at closing time and bring them to our partner organisation, People's Service Centre. The bread is then distributed amongst the elderly andlow-income families throughout the Sham Shui Po district, where the PSC is based. WHAT IS A 'BUN RUN'? Waste Free Hong Kong, being an organisation that works to alleviate the ever growing amount of rubbish in our landfills, would be crazy to ignore the 3,500 tonnes of food waste entering landfills EVERY DAY in Hong Kong alone. Due to the success of our plogs, we have decided to organise 'Bun Runs' every week when possible. Our Bun Runs will eventually take place throughout Hong Kong, however we are currently focusing on the Central & Western District, collecting surplus bread from Maxim's Bakeries and arome. Bread collection isn't anything new, but as 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, it there weren't already enough reasons to join!  HOW DO I JOIN A BUN RUN? Click the Register button and enter your contact details. 1 day before the run we will email your collection tickets. These act as your volunteer ID and will include the groups meeting point and some more information on the codes of conduct. WHAT IF I'M NOT A STRONG RUNNER? Don't worry! The run is fairly short at with routes around 2-3km. Anyone who would prefer to help distribute the bread directly at the People's Service Centre can do so. Distribution takes place from 8:15pm every week day evening, however please let us know in advance, as they already have a team of dedicated volunteers, and we do not want to overload them with people. ON THE EVENING OF THE RUN  We will meet at 7pm at the Central and Western District Promenade (just outside the Shun Tak Centre) Call the stores roughly 30 minutes before closing time to confirm if they have surplus to donate. If not, give us a call to let us know. Arrive at each store at closing time. Bring your own carrier bags. Show your Bun Run confirmation ticket through your phone or a print out to the staff at the store. Check the number of pieces donated and sign to confirm receipt. Take an official receipt if available. Pack the bread CAREFULLY into your own carrier bags. Bring the bread and receipt to the People's Service Centre IMPORTANT INFORMATION There are three routes we will run during each event, each point will be led by one of our team members.  The closest MTR exit to the meeting point is Sheung Wan Exit D. Where do we take the bread? The People's Service Centre is located at Room 206-208, Block 19, Shek Kip Mei Estate, Shek Kip Mei When do we receive our tickets? Tickets will be emailed 1 day before the Bun Run. What if I have a problem on the night? If you are running late, please call the store directly. Please call WFHK on 6360 5054 if you have a problem making your collection. What if the store informs me there is no bread to collect? All donations are subject to availability on the night. If there is no donation, please thank the store for their time and call on 6360 5054 to let us know.
