Food rescue in New Zealand

Kaibosh works in Wellington and the Hutt Valley. There are several other food rescue organisations across New Zealand.

If you’re interested in setting up a food rescue service, our first suggestion is to get in touch with one that’s already up and running. If none exists in your area, have a read of our Food Rescue Set-Up Guide and get in touch if you’d like to know more.
