We need to raise 20K in 12 days so we can break ground on a permanent home and keep filling hungry tummies while saving the planet!
Satisfy needs a forever home. Over forty community organisations such as food banks, community meal providers and schools, rely on Satisfy to provide them with healthy, quality surplus or unsellable food that was destined for landfill or animal feed.
To keep doing our mahi well, it takes more space than we currently have. We need a bigger, permanent home now! The need in our community is so great with many children, families and people going hungry while huge amounts of food are going to waste. There’s a simple solution – help us break ground on a bigger and more permanent space so we can keep redirecting excess food to where it is needed in our community.
Excitingly, we already have land and an architectural concept, but we need $20k to take the next steps. This will fund consented plans and get the diggers to site so we can break ground! The total cost of the build is around $1.5 million. We currently have an estimated $750k ear-marked from potential grant funders. If we can get our consented plans and show our funders we have community support, we are halfway there!
Your donation will help us make this dream a reality - to have a forever home so that we can keep filling plates while reducing waste. Together, we can do this, donate now!
