Volunteers are crucial to Food Rescue – without the time and effort given by people and organisations just like you, we could not exist! You can help us achieve our goal of feeding disadvantaged hungry people by volunteering just a little of your time. Are you retired or work part-time and want to give back to your local community? Can you spare some time while the kids are at school? Are you a student who wants to make a difference to those less fortunate than yourself? We welcome anyone prepared to help, so if you think this might be something you would be interested in please contact us for a copy of the Food Operations Volunteer job description (no strings attached): nzfoodrescue@gmail.com If you are keen to volunteer, whether only for a short time or on an ongoing basis, please contact us at the above email address. While it is preferred that you hold a current NZ Driver’s Licence and have access to a registered vehicle, in some circumstances we may be able to work around this, so please just let us know when you make contact if you do not have either of these things!

Donate Food

If your organisation has soon-to-expire perishable food or excess supplies, donating these to Food Rescue is a great way to give back to the local community, at the same time saving you waste disposal costs! Food Rescue will collect any surplus food at no cost to you, and promote you as a food donor on our website and at any fundraising events. Donating is easy and your customers will appreciate that you are doing your bit for the environment and those in need! Please contact us to discuss the types of goods that can be donated. If you would like to become a donor or would like any further information, please email us at: nzfoodrescue@gmail.com
