FoodShare rescues surplus food from all types of food providers including supermarkets, farmers markets, fruit and vegetable markets, corporate events, conferences, catering companies, bakeries, delis, cafes and restaurants.
The Food Act 2014 has provided clarity and reassurance to potential food donors who want to donate surplus food to charities. The Act contains a Good Samaritian Clause which ensures that surplus food can be donated to charitable causes in New Zealand without fear of liability.
FoodShare relies on volunteers to achieve its aim of reducing food wastage and feeding hungry people. Without them FoodShare would not be able to continue. If you are interested in keeping active and giving back to the community we would love to hear from you. We are always searching for more volunteers to help collect, sort and distribute food. If you would like to do your bit for our environment while helping those in need we'd love to hear from you.
More than just a cooking class our corporate volunteering and team bonding experience will engage your employees and provide a way for them and your business to give back to the community. There are many benefits to cooking in a group. It builds relationships, trust and team work. It requires planning, time management and collaborative decision making, while encouraging ‘thinking outside of the box’.
Based on the very successful OzHarvest initiative this experience is fun and humbling. Working together your teams will join a professional chef in a commercial kitchen to prepare and cook meals for those in need in your community. By helping others your team will bond and feel proud of their accomplishment.
