Our Project

Thank you very much for your interest in the Flying Croissant Project!

The idea of this project is that left-over bakery goods, which would otherwise be wasted at the end of the day, are collected from small stores and bakeries and distributed to needy charitable organisations in Zürich. The Flying Croissant Project is committed to doing this weekly, on Thursday evenings. As this takes place in the early evening, you must be 18 years of age or older to participate.

Important News

  1. Please be mindful to hand over the bakery goods only to the staff at the charitable institutions and not to individuals or those who congregate outside the establishments.
  2. It’s important to be on time when collecting from the bakeries as some of them are waiting to close after we arrive (in particular Konditorei Stocker). If for some reason you are delayed please give them a call en route.
  3. Konditorei Stocker will no longer supply bags to transport their bread nor pack it. Bring plenty of bags/folding plastic crates with you. 
  4. The Flying Croissant needs Drivers & Helpers for April and May! Go to the link below to register:
