Dig deep, and support Kaivolution Food Rescue and Redistribution. The three course banquet and auction is being hosted by Windows on Wintec, with proceeds supporting a stronger regional food rescue network.
In our first five years, more than 700 tonnes of food, destined for landfill yet still edible has been rescued from supermarkets, food growers and backyards across the Waikato. Food that’s good enough to eat, but not good enough to sell is picked up, sorted at the Frankton depot and redistributed to communities.
“The food we divert from landfill each month reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 32,000 kg per month – the equivalent of 126,000 km travelled by car”. The environmental impact is significant yet it’s the social benefit most of us associate with Kaivolution. Every month Kaivolution distributes to 80 charities and community organisations to provide access to free food for over 2,500 individuals.
The service has grown over time, and in 2019 extended to have a depot in Cambridge, collection points in local community houses and opened a Free Store in Frankton.
Kaivolution is 100% reliant on donations and the generosity of communities to rescue and redistribute food. All donations from the fundraiser banquet and auction will support a stronger regional food rescue network.
