We are The Giving Collective and we kick-started our Bun Giveaway Initiative to distribute home baked products from our homebaker network and unsold bread from commercial bakeries to needy communities around Singapore. This also helps to reduce wastage from unsold bread that would otherwise be thrown away.
We currently have distribution sites at Toa Payoh , Tampines, Yishun, Khatib, CCK, Chinatown, Lavender, Serangoon and Hougang with more to come!!
We also support St Teresa’s Nursing Home (ad-hoc), Lion Befrienders @Bukit Merah (upcoming in Nov) Marymount Centre got abused women and children (weekly donations of sunshine loaves) and Catholic AIDS Response shelters (weekly donations of buns for tea break/breakfast).
We have only come this far with the help of our volunteers! With the funding we will be able to sponsor some fresh/packaged bread with longer expiry, sponsor some baking ingredients for our regular homebakers and perhaps even sponsor baking/cooking courses/workshops for some of our unemployed beneficiaries so that they may earn a living and perhaps contribute some bakes for our cause.
