Food Sustainability Poverty

Fair Food, Auckland’s first food rescue charity, was set up to to ‘Address Hunger & Tackle Food Waste’.

We collect fit-to-consume unwanted food, which would otherwise go to land-fill and redistribute through community organisations to people who struggle to put food on the table. With both social and environmental benefits, food rescue is a ‘win-win’.

In the last year we've rescued 86 tonnes of food - mostly fresh fruit and vegetables, feeding up to 2000 people a week.

Fair Food is a completely mobile service, collecting food, mostly fresh fruit and vegetables, bread etc from supermarkets and producers, sorting it and redistributing through community agencies including police domestic violence teams, women’s refuges, teen-parenting agencies.
