Kaibosh rescues quality food that would otherwise end up in landfill and redistributes it to community groups supporting people in need.Wellington
Kaibosh Food Rescue is New Zealand’s first food rescue organisation. We link the food industry with community groups that support people in need ensuring that quality surplus food reaches those who are struggling, rather than being needlessly discarded. This benefit our community and our environment.
Kaibosh has three branches in Wellington City, Lower Hutt and Kāpiti. With the help of a dedicated team of more than 250 volunteers, we rescue and sort food seven days a week.
We redistribute up to 30,000kg of quality surplus food each month to community groups that support people in need. This is the equivalent of 85,000 meals provided to those who need it most, as well as a 10,830kg reduction in carbon emissions.
Donations enable Kaibosh to cover the costs of rescuing and redistributing quality surplus food each month, providing thousands of meals for local people in need.
With the effects of the COVID-19 crisis we need assistance more than ever to feed Wellingtonians who are struggling.
We'd love your help as we work toward a Greater Wellington with zero food poverty, zero food waste.
