Love Soup Feed the Need

We believe in feeding people rather than landfill. In mind, body and spirit.


We believe in feeding people rather than landfill.

At our heart Love Soup is a food rescue, partnering with local providers like supermarkets to collect good but unwanted food that would have gone to waste. We rescue this food, turn it into free, healthy meals to those in our communities who need a little more help to not go hungry AND distribute it to other organisations helping people in need around the North Island.

You never know who in your community might need help having a meal, we welcome all to our table and treat every person with the humanity and respect all deserve. We feed mind, body and spirit.

More about us

Love Soup started in 2013, giving out soup during Matariki. Pretty soon we were a fully blown food rescue charity in Whangaparāoa. Partnering with food providers, like supermarkets, to rescue good food that would have gone to waste and help turn it into nourishing meals to deliver to the people in our communities who really need them.

We have done a lot of growing since we first began. We are now rescuing and delivering good food with our partners in Whangaparāoa, Auckland, Huntly, Ngaruawahia, Hamilton, Tokoroa, Rotorua and Te Kuiti and running 5 kitchens of our own in Auckland + 1 in Tokoroa! Feeding anyone and everyone who needs it.

We believe that it is not only our mission to feed people, but to treat our guests with the dignity and love that we would a guest in our own home, providing our service without judgement or expectation.

We are completely run by our wonderful volunteers and are very proud of what we have accomplished and look forward to helping even more people as we continue.
