  • Hi all. We’ve been rescuing good food since 2011 and thus far this virus hasn’t stopped us. If you are are a food business, grower or some such and have perishable or even frozen food/protein to donate, get in touch. We are still feeding the need, and not landfill. Especially now, programs we support like ‘Feed the Streets’, food banks & others, need us more than ever. Get in touch if you can help. If you know a food business outside of Auckland, get in touch too. We can supply a list of food rescue orgs all around NZ.  Kia kaha.⠀

  • Fair Food Friday operations meeting today! We take social distancing very seriously! Who do you distance for? We're doing it for the community!  #washyourhands #fairfoodnz #feedpeoplenotlandfill #foodrescue #west #auckland #community
  • With events being cancelled, Fair Food and other food rescue organisations up & down Aotearoa is here to help ensure good food does not go to waste and is brought to those in need. ⠀
Many of the communities we donate good rescued food to may be greatly impacted by work changes or closures from COVID-19. ⠀
Many of the people food rescue and food banks assist may not have the ability to work from home nor the means to ‘stock up’ even a little. Many are already vulnerable and experience food scarcity. ⠀
Please reach out if you have excess food to donate or are interested in contributing or donating to help our efforts right now.  Contact us at info@fairfood.org.nz and we will point you in the right direction.⠀
Look out for each other.⠀
Check-in on your neighbours.⠀
Thank you all for your continued support.⠀
Fair Food. Feeding people, not landfill, connecting communities.⠀

  • Our intention at Fair Food is to continue to operate as safely at possible and to first and foremost serve the vulnerable in our communities who face food scarcity, can't stock up,  and who need us now more than ever. Look out for each other, check in on your neighbours. Thank you for all your continued support. Kia kaha Aotearoa

  • Happy international Women's Day! Today we acknowledge the gendered aspect of food insecurity - where women face greater risk of not having enough to eat. We also acknowledge the amazing wahine working to combat this. All levels of our Fair Food Family champion gender equality! As do our community and volunteer partners. So today, shout out to you, mana wahine, for the mahi you do and continue to do.⠀
