Hot Cross Buns for Good Friday
On 15 April, 2022, Allspice Institute teamed up with alumnus Ms. Agnes, and conducted a fund raising project with the Bold Bakers and CBMC Singapore. The team made Hot Cross Buns, which carried significant meanings during this Easter week celebration. In 1592, Queen Elizabeth I decreed that the buns could no longer be sold on any day except for Good Friday, Christmas or for burials. The myth is that they simply were too special to be eaten any other day.
Chef Anup, Ms Agnes and two more alumni volunteers did the impossible: 800 Hot Cross Buns within 8 hours!
Ms Agnes shared her thoughts about working with Allspice Institute, after having studied there. She believed that the Institute was the best in baking and would successfully reach the goal of this drive.
Circle of Friends
Allspice Institute combined forces with the Circle of Friends group, to distribute 50 Bento Boxes, each containing staple rice, mixed vegetables, choice of meat, fish or chicken, and dessert. Running on every Tuesday and Thursday since 2018 (till the start of the COVID-19 pandemic), the Served with Love Charity Drive helped support underprivileged families in Bukit Merah. We are grateful for all the support and love provided by our staff and volunteers.
For our Christmas Event in 2019, it was our pleasure to give back to the immigrant community of Singapore. We were delighted to spread the cheer at the Migrant Workers' Centre in Kranji and Jurong. Allspice Institute completed a Charity Drive at the Centre, donating 250 packets of Chicken Biryani and 250 packets of Vegetable Biryani.
