Best of luck with your fundraising!
Food Partnership Programme
This is a partnership programme between KAIBOSH FOOD RESCUE and the market stallholders. Kaibosh is New Zealand’s first food rescue charity and acts as the link between retailers with surplus food and the charities who need it most by rescuing food that is good enough to eat, but possibly not good enough to sell. Since 2008 they have rescued over 2.5 million kg of quality surplus food and redistributed it to over 120 charities in the Greater Wellington region, providing the equivalent of over 7 million meals worth of food! The Harbourside Market Food Partnership Programme Stallholders provide KAIBOSH with unsold, fresh produce from the market on a weekly basis to be sorted and distributed to charities for collection. Since we started working with KAIBOSH we’ve donated over 230,000kg which has been passed on to community groups supporting people doing it tough.
This is the equivalent of over 657,000 meals and a carbon emission reduction total of 68,700kg
This programme is a great example of how the Wellington City Council is working to support the less fortunate in their community.
