Bread Rescue program saves surplus bread and pasty products which are taken back to
central kitchen / distribution units in daily basis. The surplus products are packed in boxes for pickups and with support of GrabExpress, FoodCycle Indonesia picks up the boxes in daily basis, which are then delivered directly directly to FoodCycle Indonesia’s partners (Other Yayasan and Initiatives).
The partners were trained to assess the surplus food safety and quality, and then distribute the surplus bread on the same day for direct consumption (the next morning the latest)
