When we entered the NZ Food Awards for the Food Hero Category, it was both a shock and honor to also walk away with the 2020 Supreme Winner Award too. This award is not just for us but the many organisations and people who helped us deliver the millions of meals that were distributed to our communities.
In 2019, Fair Food was a mobile service that rescued and delivered over 120 tonnes but when the COVID pandemic struck, we ended up re-distributing over 140 tonnes of food a week. COVID was a game-changer for food rescue because of the sheer volumes of food that was in the supply chain when lockdown hit the nation. Through teamwork, dedication and creativity we ended up distributing over 3 million meals in 2020.
