Addressing hunger tackling food waste

Fair Food is Auckland’s First Food Rescue Charity
Feeding People Not Landfill

Fair Food is Auckland’s First Food Rescue Charity, working to deliver its vision of ‘Addressing Hunger and Tackling Food Waste’. This dynamic organisation has delivered on its strong environmental and social goals across the West Auckland region since its inception in 2012 and is excited about the future prospects for Food Rescue in New Zealand. It’s all about the collection and redistribution of surplus food. By collecting food that would otherwise be going to waste/landfill and redirecting it to those who need it, in 2016 Fair Food rescued over 110,000 Kg's of food equal to 277'000 meals. At a cost of $0.30c per meal delivered. Fair Food is building important relationships between local business and community. Fair Food is not a food bank but it is West Auckland’s first Food Rescue operation with unlimited opportunities ahead. With a dual social and environmental purpose, interest is high from the commercial, business, social, community, educational and environmental sectors. The immediate environmental impact since the introduction of Fair Food is the reduction in landfill. Fair Food is a mobile service, with food collected daily from food growers, producers and retailers. On the same day this food is then delivered to a wide range of community groups, social agencies, educational spaces and charitable organisations who then pass on the food to people who are in need. Fair Food has directly impacted the lives of greater than 500 families each week.
