15 Years of Food Rescue – Media Release

Kaibosh Food Rescue is 15 – serving the community since 2008 Media Release – 3 October 2023 Getting good food to people, instead of going to landfill just makes sense. That’s what Kaibosh Food Rescue has been doing since 2008. Kaibosh turns 15 in October, and since starting up has rescued and re-distributed an astounding 3.5 million kgs of surplus food, which equates to more than 10 million meals worth of kai getting to people via their network of hard-working community groups. Susie Robertson, CE/Kaiarahi of Kaibosh since June 2023, says “the work Kaibosh does is so tangible – every day I get to witness so much rescued healthy and nutritious food going out to our partner charities who then distribute it to those suffering from food insecurity.
