Satisfy Food Rescue

North Canterbury food rescue charity that redistribute surplus edible kai from retailers & growers to local charities who help those in need


Bridging the gap by re-directing the abundance of food in our community to where it is needed!

Satisfy Food Rescue works collaboratively with local food donors and community organisations so that food that was otherwise destined for landfill or animal feed is distributed to those in the community who really need it.

It all began in March 2014 when a group of like-minded individuals got together to discuss setting up a food rescue organization in North Canterbury. From this Satisfy Food Rescue was born. We are all passionate about reducing food wastage and making healthy food available to everyone.

Food rescue is where food is rescued from food retailers and growers and redistributed to charities who work with people in need. A simple concept but actual follow through requires a lot of organisation and inputs!

How do we know we're having an impact?

We measured it...

And found out that every $1 invested in food rescue generates $4.50 of value!
