Fair Food

Organisation page created in the Community category

Pay it forward these holidays. Help Fair Food get surplus food to those facing food insecurity. Access to good food should be fair for all.


The Fair Food charity delivers rescued surplus good food to charities, food banks and community agencies throughout Auckland – including family violence teams, women’s refuges, homeless, mental health and teen-parenting agencies. Instead of being dumped, this food is doing good.

In September alone, we redistributed over 127 tonnes or 127,000 kilos! That's 363,000 meals at a cost of .25 cents a meal. Yes! For every $1 we distribute 4 meals.

Covid-19 has seen a huge increase in food rescued due to the impact on the supply chain, and a growing awareness that food can be repurposed for good. At the same time, the numbers of vulnerable people facing food scarcity have risen. It is estimated 1 in 5 New Zealanders are facing food insecurity - unsure where their next meal is coming from, or how to pay for it. Hunger has no place in New Zealand.

Fair Food is an essential social service and an unseen connector between food businesses with surplus good food and those in need.

Be a Covid-19 Food Rescue Superhero this Christmas. Help get tonnes of good food to those that need it. Help us feed people, not landfill. Pay some cheer forward. Please donate now. A little goes a long way.

More about us

Fair Food, Auckland’s first food rescue charity, addresses food insecurity, tackles food waste and social isolation. We rescue fit-to-eat, surplus, good food from primary producers, manufacturers & retailers that would otherwise go to landfill, and redistribute it free of charge to people who struggle to put food on the table. With both social and environmental benefits, food recovery is a ‘win-win’. Fair Food rescues, lovingly hand sorts & redistributes the rescued food to numerous community social agencies, charities and foodbanks. Each week Fair Food rescue and redistribute enough to help nourish 4,000 whanau. Being a nimble, lean, well-run service, we rescue & redistribute 4 meals for a $1. So even a dollar makes a BIG difference in someone's life, and for our planet. In 2020, Fair Food were awarded the Greater Good and Supreme Award at the New Zealand Food Awards for our collaborative community-led response to Covid-19. Join us. We're here for good.
