Collaborations

Stop. Collaborate and listen. Yes, we love a good tune especially if it talks about good things like collaboration. We know that we’re not a one-stop-shop for solving the issues of food waste, climate change and hunger on our own.

Like-minded people

Community collaboration is how we can all build scale and support each other towards a sustainable New Zealand. We’ve partnered with some of the best in the business and are super proud to bring new ways and ideas with rescued food.

Kete Kai x Fair Food / Pay it forward

We love working with the team at Kete Kai who provide ‘pay it forward’ food boxes alongside their mission to redesign the food system by offering accessible food meal kits. Grounded in kaupapa Maori principles, Kete Kai is on a mission to end hunger in Aotearoa by 2030.

Recreators x Fair Food / Upcycling

In July 2021, The Recreators and Fair Food joined forces and offered a hands-on one-day school holiday workshop upcycling food and wood that would have otherwise been wasted. In the morning, everyone made lunch to share and then in the afternoon, a build-your-own planter box!

Sustainable Food Co x Fair Food / Catering

We were super stoked to collaborate with Awesome Amy to cater the ‘Future of Food’ summit held in West Auckland. As part of the Kai West team alongside Community Waitākere, EcoMatters, Healthy Families Waitākere, Massey Matters and MPHS Community Trust, the Summit was an opportunity for us to work out solutions for making West Auckland more food resilient.

Like-minded schools

So many schools in Auckland are involved in giving back to the community which they dub ‘service weeks’. Sometimes these can be over a long period of time or for a day. We’ve supported and partnered with some amazing young people who are crazy about giving back. The future is bright with this generation!

Dilworth School for Boys

Led by the bubbly Krista, Dilworth’s Service Leader, a cohort of Dilworth Boys came to Fair Food every two weeks to help us with our mahi. They cleaned, they sorted, they did DIY and also got to taste test our new pizza oven.

Hiranya Fernando – Baradene School for Girls

Hiranya is working towards her Duke of Edinburgh Hillary Award challenging young people to dream big and discover their potential. As part of this award, you must give back or provide voluntary service so it’s fantastic that Hiranya chose Fair Food to complete her service!

Waitakere College Inclusion Unit

Encouraging independence for their students, we have volunteers joining us from our local Waitākere College! They volunteer with several organisations across West Auckland including some of our recipient groups such as Mercy Waitemata and Aruruqai.

St Dominic’s Girls Catholic College

Volunteering is part of the St Dominic’s service at school curriculum. They chose Fair Food because of our contribution to both the planet and people (as well as being able to come along during school hours!)

Equippers College

During Fair Food’s biggest rescue ever (from one store) we had the people power from Equippers College join us for one week to help us pack and store over 60 pallets of food from the Countdown Henderson fire rescue. Bringing energy, smarts and a whole lot of fun, these guys and gals were literally god-sent!
