  • WE'RE HIRING! 
Ready, willing and able to become a food rescue champion as we help the Auckland community through the COVID-19 crisis?

We are looking for a casual, backup driver to help out with our day to day running of food collections and deliveries throughout Central and West Auckland.
We need someone who can relate to food donors and recipients including producers, store managers and recipient organisations alike.

You will have a full licence, be confident driving a manual vehicle, physically fit, and a naturally positive person with great communication skills.
The position will involve a mixture of driving, collecting food, sorting food, tallying weights and delivering to community organisations primarily in West Auckland.
This role will suit someone who is well organised, has great time management skills and is motivated by the opportunity to make a positive difference in the community.
An advantage would be if you were familiar with supermarket loading docks, have had some prior truck driving or delivery experience, and have managed data collection before.
Apply now! Send your CV and covering letter to: heatherfairfood@gmail.com
  • Connecting the dots! Food waste ⏩food security.

Massive thank you to our volunteers from street ministries and Mercy Waitemata Trust!
This mahi gets food ready to be donated across numerous charities & food banks.

Thank you to @Eventbasenz for a pop-up home and giving us a helping hand to scale-up so rapidly!

Thank you to @PunchbowlKiwifruit for today's star of the show.
These 15 tubs of @zesprikiwifruit are of exceptional quality, packed full of great nutrients and taste!

Each of these groups delivers something necessary to our operation - we are honoured to be coordinating and driving this idea.
Food waste is only a problem if you view it as such - changing the perspective and seeing it as a solution is currently helping Fair Food help feed 16,000 people a week!!! Want to be part of this rebuild?
Want to partner us to create change?
Do you know a business who has surplus food?
Want to volunteer your time?
Send us an email or message!! Otherwise - be a food rescue superhero from home!
Please donate now. A little will go a long way.
