Every day Fair Food collects over 2 tonnes of surplus fresh food and distributes it at no cost to 50 local support groups including women’s shelters, Plunket and mental health and social service agencies.
Our trucks arrive at midday with the rescued food, then volunteers spend about three hours of picking through crates to separate the good from the funky and prepare the boxes to be shared with kids and families in need.
You can also volunteer in our Conscious Kitchen in the morning.
As a team you will laugh, get your hands dirty and make a real difference by not only giving back to the community but also learning about food insecurity, waste and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Read more about volunteering at Fair Food in our Volunteer Handbook.
You can help provide the ingredients for a healthy meal for just 50 cents, PLUS you’ll save greenhouse emissions by keeping good kai outta landfill.
Does your employer offer payroll giving? It’s a great way to give through your salary or wages and you’ll get a tax credit for each donation you make.
We’ve got so many fun and fantastic ideas to help you fundraise for Fair Food. From rescued morning teas to zero waste events, you can help us spread the word and earn the moolah.
