Food Rescue Northland has a reputation that precedes them. In the last year they have rescued over 41 tonnes of food from local producers, pack houses and markets,  they have provided 25.7k meals and with only 2% of all the food rescued going eventually to waste they are a leadinf provider of food to many social service groups across Northland.

Healthy Families Far North is a proud partner and has been continuously inspired by the work of the kaimahi and volunteers who keep the van wheels rolling. The team from Healthy Families Far North stopped into the Food Rescue Whangārei base to catch up with the crew and left feeling overwhelmed with pride.

While system innovator Hone Wikitera says ‘it’s a beautiful kaupapa and I’m proud that Healthy Families Far North can show our spoourt through partnership.’

The food rescue team are constantly looking for more way in which they can get good quality kai out to the community. If you would like to support our partner then feel free to follow the link below.
