Fair Food is proud to be working with Countdown Supermarkets as part of there food rescue program.
Wherever possible, Countdown’s policy is to donate food that is still fit for consumption to our food rescue charity partners throughout New Zealand.
Since 2011, Countdown stores have partnered with foodbanks to donate surplus food that would otherwise go to landfill.
Each year this equates to around $3.5 million of food donated to foodbanks and community groups, plus an additional $1.2 million of food to farmers for their animals.
This not only helps reduce waste but helps feed families and individuals in need.
