New Zealand Food Network (NZFN) offers one simple solution to two major issues:

1. good food ending up in landfill, and 2. the rising rate of food insecurity in New Zealand
NZ Food Network Auckland Distribution Centre

NZFN prevents good food from going to landfill and redirects it to communities who need it most, bringing bulk scale, efficiency and equity to the food rescue and relief sector.

In New Zealand, 1 in 5 children live in households without access to enough food. Meanwhile, approximately 103,000 tonnes of food waste is generated by the commercial sector every year. Our work relieves both of these issues and makes a positive impact on people and the environment.

What some of our donors have said...

NZFN makes it easy for businesses to do the right thing

Throughout New Zealand, there are hundreds of food rescue organisations, iwi and charities working overtime to support those in need, as well as many generous food businesses trying to do the right thing with their surplus product.

Donating surplus food in bulk volume to local charities typically presents numerous logistical issues, often making it difficult to move stock quickly. Through a single point of contact, NZFN provides the solution for businesses with bulk surplus stock to get their food to where it’s needed most.
