Food Rescue Heroes provide 5,500
Kaibosh meals to Wellingtonians in need


Mar 16


Since launching Food Rescue Heroes in November 2015, Kaibosh has raised the funds to provide the equivalent of 5,500 meals to Wellingtonians in need. The Food Rescue Heroes supporters’ programme sees Kaibosh teaming up with popular local businesses that offer special deals to regular donors.


Food Rescue Heroes enjoy special deals and offers at popular Wellington businesses which support Kaibosh’s vision of Zero Food Poverty, Zero Food Waste.

Kaibosh General Manager Matt Dagger is delighted with the interest in the programme, saying “Food Rescue Heroes is the perfect chance for Kaibosh to partner with businesses we admire, while also rewarding our supporters with deals that mean they can enjoy our city even more.”

Food Rescue Heroes are welcomed into the programme with a delicious, locally-sourced Welcome Pack, put together by Peoples Coffee, Wellington Chocolate Factory and Ideal Cup – all businesses which support Kaibosh’s vision of Zero Food Poverty, Zero Food Waste.

Along with the Welcome Pack, supporters receive a range of deals from well-loved Wellington establishments like Six Barrel Soda, Flight Coffee, Logan Brown, The Ramen Shop and Fidel’s – with more businesses to come.

Wellington Chocolate Factory Sales Manager Mona Zo Rayo says, “We’re proud to be part of Kaibosh’s Food Rescue Heroes programme. We don’t create surplus chocolate, so this is a different way that we can contribute to Kaibosh’s work and provide something a little special to their supporters.”

“The backing of the Wellington community is key to Kaibosh’s success, and we’re looking forward to welcoming many more Food Rescue Heroes on to the programme,” said Matt.
