It’s our birthday – join us to celebrate with community

Kaibosh turns 15 – Community Party & Open Days Aotearoa’s first food rescue charity started back in 2008! In that time we’ve rescued and re-distributed over 10 million meals worth of good kai for the community.  We’re planning a week of open days to mark our birthday between 14 and 20 October. Join us for a community party at one of our three sites in Pōneke on 14 October, Petone on the 18th and Paraparaumu on the 19th – full details below. Can you give $15 for 15? If you’re able to, please donate to help our important mahi at Kaibosh – making a difference for our communities and the environment.
