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!

Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was
wondering if you knew where I could locate
a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the
same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?

Thanks a lot!

I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if
all web owners and bloggers made good content
as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

it a look. I’m definitely loving the information.

Wonderful blog and excellent style and design.

My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from
PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the
expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less.
I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about
a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
I have heard good things about Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into
it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little
more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Hi, I do believe this is a great site. I stumbledupon it
😉 I’m going to come back once again since I bookmarked it.
Money and freedom is the best way to change,
may you be rich and continue to help others.
