Supporting Food Rescue – Kaibosh

Charity stories

A Gift Trust donor has donated to Kaibosh for several years, which has contributed to providing over 50,000 meals worth of food a month to the most vulnerable and marginalised in the Wellington community.

The Gift Trust, through the generosity of an anonymous donor, have supported Kaibosh for three years, making donations totalling $70,000. Kaibosh is a charity that rescues leftover food from cafes, restaurants and supermarkets and distributes it to communities and organisations working with people in need across Wellington and Lower Hutt. To find out more about the amazing work of Kaibosh watch the short clip below.

Kaibosh operates from two branches – one in Wellington and one on Lower Hutt. After establishing their Lower Hutt branch in late 2015, they have seen ongoing growth of this branch, which means they are able to support more community members and organisations. Over 2017 they have been able to achieve the following:
