Fair Food is gearing up to share enough fresh food for more than 100,000 meals this December to families who would otherwise go without.

“The demand for food support is higher than ever before, but our community is rallying to meet the need, so everyone has a meal to share on Christmas,” says Michelle Blau, Fair Food General Manager. 

“More than 200 volunteers have already signed up to help us sort through 30 tonnes of fresh food and get it ready for distribution via 50 local charities.

“Food brings people together, but it can also be a source of shame when you have nothing to bring to a gathering. Far too many people in our community miss out on social activities because of hunger. 

“No one’s grocery budget is going as far as it used to, and with the kids at home for summer, we know that adds extra costs and pressures on families who are already doing it tough. Fair Food is operating 7 days a week to meet the growing demand from people who work full-time but need food support,” shares Michelle.

Join our friends and neighbours who are pitching in. 

Bid for items on our 12 days of Christmas TradeMe auction. There’s something for everyone on the naughty or nice list. 

Order our Fair Food cupcakes and savoury treats for your next gathering.

Bring your family around to volunteer in our Conscious Kitchen or at our sorting tables.
