The Kai Rescue programme was established in 2017 with the aim of minimizing food waste in our community.

Our team collects food from supermarkets, growers, manufacturers and other food outlets that is good enough to eat but is surplus or non-saleable.

We partner with over 60+ food recipient organisations from Nelson Tasman region who distribute food to individuals and families in need.

This program engages a number of volunteers who help us to collect, sort and pack the food.
