There’s a modern-day Robin Hood operating in West Auckland on a daily basis. The only thing is, it’s not the rich he is stealing from, rather, the rubbish – saving fresh food from ending up in the landfill and redistributing it to people who need it.
So where is the food going? The recipients vary – some are food banks, others are religious centres or educational facilities – but all are in West Auckland and all have hungry tummies to feed.
Operating this on-the-road distribution system is efficient as they’re not double handling goods by taking them in and out of a storage facility, and the same-day deliveries ensures the produce is not deteriorating further before it is delivered. However, this system does limit the amount of food they are able to rescue.
