The past year has been a year of consolidation for Kaibosh. For the second year running we were able to distribute over 2 million meals worth of good, rescued food to our communities in the Greater Wellington Region.
After the trials of COVID-19, it has been great to be able to focus on business as usual getting good food to those who need it, with far fewer distractions and disruptions seen in previous years.
Our team have been working hard to be innovative in finding new types of food donors and looking for new streams of funding to ensure we can continue to meet the needs of our community.

In the 12 month period between July 2022 and June 2023, Kaibosh rescued and redistributed 743,929kg of quality surplus food. This equates to 2,125,509 meals worth of kai for people in our communities, while also saving 197,140 kg CO2 equivalent in emissions released, that would have been created had that food ended up rotting in landfill.
We are only able to achieve this level of positive impact for our communities and the environment, with the contribution from our volunteers. Between July 2022 – June 2023 over 6,000 volunteer hours were gifted to Kaibosh, to support our important mahi.
Kaibosh turned 15 in 2023! We couldn’t continue to do what we do without the support of you, our community.
As with all charities, we hope that one day we won’t have to exist – in a world with no food poverty and no food waste. But, for now we will keep on with our mahi to ensure food feeds people and isn’t needlessly wasted.
Together, with your help we can make a difference.
