rescuing surplus food!

Every year Kiwis send 571,000 tonnes of food to landfill, all of which could have been eaten. Not only is wasting food costing us money, but it is also bad for the environment. 


By rescuing and redistributing high quality food we represent a socially conscientious and environmentally aware organisation.

OUR vision

We will deliver a direct benefit to the community through food rescue, to sustainably address climate change on a local level.

Today I had the pleasure of collecting a lot of amazing food from your lovely volunteers in Napier. Having suffered extensive income loss within our household due to Covid, we have now gotten to the stage where we are really struggling, as so many families are.  

I'm messaging to let you know the absolute joy you brought my family today. It may sound dramatic, but truly, the box of fresh produce was an absolute joy to unpack, it lightened my heart, so fresh, so beautifully packed, that box of goodness made it seem like Christmas. And the kindness of the volunteers made life feel so much lighter. Tomorrow they can eat all the fresh veg and fruit they like.

"So thank you, thank you more than you could ever imagine."
