Kaibosh has a dedicated team of volunteers who help us rescue food – join us!
This project has been simmering over recent months. Inside our largest food rescue hub in Pito-one, we have created a new cooking zone! Kai cooked at Kaibosh will use ‘second-sort’ rescued produce which can’t be distributed to the community as is. It’s the boxes of slightly squishy tomatoes, damaged vegetables, or bruised fruit – often it’s seasonal surplus that just needs a little TLC to be edible. Instead of being sent off to compost or to feed animals, we can now turn this food into nutritious, safe and delicious kai to distribute to our partner charities. Feeding people first!Continue Reading
