Feeding Hong Kong Bread Run

Posted by admin

Feeding HK logoHelp Feeding Hong Kong bridge the gap between hunger and food waste by helping them collect fresh bread and sandwiches from shops across Hong Kong at closing time.

The Bread Run engages individual and pairs of volunteers in the nightly collection of surplus fresh bread. Each bread runner visits 1-2 stores at closing time to pick up the surplus and then delivers the items to a designated FHK drop-off point.  All bread run donations are redistributed via the FHK charity network the same night or first thing the following morning.

There are three ways you could get involved in Feeding HKs Bread Run –
1. Become a weekly FHK volunteer
2. Join the FHK monthly Bread Run
3. Host a dedicated Bread Run for a group of volunteers

Looking for Nude Food Dudes

Posted by admin

Nude food is where you minimize (or eliminate) the waste that you leave over after you have eaten your lunch.  Plastic wrappers, plastic bottles, chip packets, biscuit wrappers – all of these things end up in our rubbish dumps.  Here in Hong Kong, we produce over 6,450,000 tonnes of rubbish a year that goes to landfills, and these landfills are filling up rapidly.

Keen to do something about this?  Keen to be a Nude food dude, and encourage others to go nude?  Then click here to sign up for the DC Nude Food Day committee, and get involved in organizing the DC Nude Food Day.  (This is only open to Year 11 students – and yes, it can be a C&S Project).  Sign up today!



World Food Day – volunteers wanted

Posted by admin

World Food Day logoDid you know that about a third of all food produced globally is wasted?  Here in Hong Kong, according to Friends of the Earth (HK), we produce over 3,000 tonnes of food waste every year!  Then of course there are the food issues of famine and ensuring that we produce enough food for an ever-increasing world population.

World Food Day (16th of October every year) is a day declared by the UN General Assembly to aim to heighten public awareness of world food problems and strengthen solidarity in the struggle against hunger, malnutrition and poverty.  We will be holding events / activities here at DC to celebrate this day as a part of our Community Engagement.  We are asking for Year 9 students to form an committee that will orgniase our involvement.   Keen to get involved?  Then click here and sign up today as there is a limit on how many people can join this committee.   And yes – this would be a C&S Project.
