As the COVID-19 lockdown continues, so does our work at Kaibosh. Watch the video to find out what we’ve been up to, or read below for our updates.
As an essential service, we are doing our best to make sure good food still reaches those who need it during these challenging times.
Of the 92 charities and community groups that we were working with before COVID-19, 32 are still receiving food from Kaibosh, and providing it to their clients.
We are working hard to collect surplus food from as many of our regular food donors as possible. They are continuing to work hard to supply us with kai, despite how busy they are in these trying times.
At Kaibosh we’re humbled by all that our food donors and partner charities are doing to help feed so many families who are being hit hard at the moment.
We have temporarily paused our operations at our Hutt and Kāpiti bases and are doing all of our mahi out of our Wellington branch, doing our best to service all our communities from there.
To ‘shrink our bubble’ we have put our regular volunteer programme on hold. A small crew of staff and a very limited number of volunteers are working hard through the lockdown to rescue and redistribute food.
Half of the Kaibosh whānau are working from our Wellington City base, while the other half are isolating at home. We’re checking in regularly to make sure the whole team is doing OK and that operations continue smoothly with a much smaller on-site crew.
With the effects of the Covid-19 crisis, your ongoing support is helping to feed Wellingtonians who are struggling more than ever right now. Thank you for your generosity.
