Since 2017, we’ve been working hard to tackle hunger and the emmisions that come from food waste in Taitokerau Northland.
We are grateful for donations of any size. From large scale commercial producers to supermarkets, local suppliers, producers and locals with extra fruit and vegetables growing on their property, thank you for contributing your surplus food to our mahi.
