Dunkin’ Fires a Worker for Giving Unsold Food To the Homeless

Nowadays there are many campaigns for raising awareness of food waste as it is an important issue. And still, some restaurants prefer to throw out their leftover food instead of giving it to the homeless.

Recently a 16-year-old Dunkin’ Donuts employee showed his closing routine on TikTok. The video went viral and got over 25 million views in a week. Just imagine, the guy had to throw away several hundred donuts every single night!

16-year-old Bryan Johnston showed how he usually disposes of all of the unsold baked goods, coffee, and tea at the end of the day. It’s just a routine that he has to follow.

Some of the people in the comments section suggested that Bryan give the leftover donuts to the homeless. The employee took the advice. He also decided to make a separate batch of donuts for the local firefighters.

He was soon fired from Dunkin’ Donuts. Bryan believes that the reason for this was his video. The 16-year-old has been working there for 5 months.

After Bryan got fired he got a lot of support from many people online. Some even supported him with money. But Bryan stayed true to himself and decided to use the money to buy donuts for healthcare workers. But this time they were Krispy Kreme donuts, not Dunkin’.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
