Fair Food expands our reach in the West Auckland community with the official opening of a donated kitchen, thanks to the DE Group and Jones Family Business, and support from DIA Lotteries and MSD.
“At Fair Food, we’re passionate about feeding our communities in need. We know how good it feels when someone’s taken the time to make you a nice meal or baked some banana cake, especially during a stressful time,” shares Michelle Blau, Fair Food General Manager.
“Our new kitchen facilities make it possible to get up to 2500 more meals to our charity partners across Auckland every month. By saving this food from landfill, our aim is for the Conscious Kitchen to keep more than 9.3 tonnes of greenhouse gases from going into the atmosphere over the next year.
“The kitchen is the heart of any home. We are excited to now have space to offer community cooking classes and educational events, too. We are overwhelmed by the generosity of the DE Group and Jones Family Business helping make this vision come true,” says Ms. Blau.
“When we first heard about Fair Food, we were very moved by the positive impact that they have on the community. At Kitchen Things, we help people get the most out of their appliances and at Fair Food, they help people get the most out of food, so we felt a strong alignment. Being a New Zealand, intergenerational family business, we were delighted to donate the kitchen and a suite of new Inalto and Smeg kitchen appliances that can further help Fair Food to maximise the use of food they rescue,” shares Rachel Louie, Managing Director of Jones Family Business and Kitchen Things.
