Auckland’s fresh food rescue organisation KiwiHarvest has opened their new headquarters, in a bid to double its impact and reach more Aucklanders in need. A not-for-profit, KiwiHarvest collects quality surplus fresh food from supermarkets, wholesalers, growers, cafes and caterers and delivers it free of charge to Auckland charities, to be shared with people in need.
Since beginning operations in 2015, the organisation has delivered the equivalent of 750,000 meals to more than 100 charities. This has saved over 260 tonnes of good food from landfill.
Its new headquarters are repurposed old shipping containers which adds to its goal of sustainable food and living.
