FOOD SECURITY HUB

We are a registered foodbank, WINZ and other agencies can send a referral on your behalf if you require food support. Our focus is on creating kai that is healthy and cost-effective. We take unsaleable food from a variety of sources, food that cannot be sold but is good enough to eat, and repackage and redistribute it to the people who need it.
