Foodlink collaborates closely with many of the larger local bakery and convenience store chains to donate their unsold bread after closing for redistribution to our beneficiaries.
Instead of having the surplus bread delivered directly to our beneficiaries by our Foodlink vans, the beneficiaries send their own staff or volunteers to the stores for pick up. Only items which do not require refrigeration and don't contain meat or cream will be donated. The leftover bread is then redistributed to the needy for free.
The Bread Program is usually recommended to beneficiaries that may not have adequate food storage or kitchen facilities on site.
