Bespoke Partnerships

Here are a few examples of our unique partnership opportunities. Get in touch to collaborate with us.

Life Health Foods


“The food we re-distribute reaches thousands of homes every week and yet no-one would know who we are because Fair Food is essentially the ‘charity behind the charities’. This collaboration with Naked Locals means we can raise awareness of who we are, so more people will know more about our mission, food rescue and why this is an awesome cause to support” said Melissa Crawford, Board Chair – Fair Food Charitable Trust.

Aussie Butcher New Lynn


Fair Food loves the opportunity to promote West Auckland kai so are delighted to partner with The Aussie Butcher New Lynn and welcome owner Reuben Sharples as Fair Food’s newest Ambassador.

Aussie Butcher New Lynn have always led by example, investing in and giving back to the community they are part of. Reuben and his wife Katie are not only generous donors and ambassadors, but Katie also volunteers her time in Fair Food’s Conscious Kitchen.

Through this partnership Fair Food will be able to share over 75,000 meals to the community as well as receiving thousands of dollars worth of meat to distribute to those in need.

“Fair Food is a fantastic organisation making a difference in West Auckland,” shares Reuben. Every week Fair Food supports over 50 charity groups operating on the frontline providing wraparound support in West Auckland. “This is why Katie and I decided to become a partner with Fair Food and create a brighter, healthier future in West Auckland,” shares Reuben.

“Fair Food is humbled that Reuben and Katie have chosen to help so many families heal by receiving the highest quality food when they need it most,“ says Fair Food GM Michelle Blau. “The generosity of their family will help thousands of people get back on their feet during a challenging time.”

“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.



Fair Food’s Conscious Kitchen is benefitting from kaumātua cooking knowledge through an innovative recipe partnership with Oceania – Retirement & Aged Care Living.

During a 9-week recipe competition, residents submitted over 170 recipes using their generational knowledge in the kitchen, primarily focusing on minimising food waste. Driving the project amongst Oceania’s residents was Resident Experience Manager Julia Biggs,

“This was a fantastic opportunity to tap into our resident’s generational knowledge of preparing and cooking quality food. Many of our residents would have grown up with the ‘Waste Not, Want Not’ mindset, so making sure no food goes to waste was second nature to them. We were overwhelmed at the response we got, and it was a real joy to see family favourite recipes submitted, some of which were created generations ago.” Julia Biggs, Oceania Retirement and Aged Care Living.
