To be the link between the food industry and those that support people in need.
Kaibosh encourages staff, volunteers, and trustees to be: courageous, compassionate, smart, genuine, and independent.
What we do
Kaibosh is based in Wellington and is New Zealand’s first food rescue organisation.
We link the food industry with community groups that support people in need ensuring that quality surplus food reaches those who are struggling rather than being needlessly discarded. This benefits both our community and our environment.
Working in Wellington and the Hutt Valley with the help of a dedicated team of more than 200 volunteers, Kaibosh rescues and sorts food 7 days a week. We deliver up to 25,000kg of quality surplus food each month to community groups that support people in need. This is the equivalent of 71,000 meals provided to those who need it most, as well as a 19,400kg reduction in carbon emissions.
