Volunteer with us

Volunteers are the heart and soul of KiwiHarvest – we simply couldn’t do what we do, or grow without you. So we make sure that volunteering with us is fun and rewarding too.

It’s important to us that we’re able to provide every KiwiHarvest volunteer with a rewarding role, and the support to thrive in that role, so there are a whole range of ways you can lend a hand.

We currently have vacancies at all our locations across New Zealand and would love to hear from you!

Please give us a call or email volunteer@kiwiharvest.org.nz for more information or to get involved!

Cooking for a Cause

Cooking for a Cause is KiwiHarvest’s unique team building experience where everyone wins!

Working together under the guidance of a professional Chef for a Cause in a commercial kitchen environment, your team will cook from mystery boxes of rescued produce for the ultimate food rescue challenge! Cooking up goodness over 3 or 4 hours, we will prepare delicious meals that we will package for delivery to nourish families and individuals in need.

Not only will you save good food from landfill and feed people who are struggling, but the funds generated from your participation in our team building programme will also support KiwiHarvest’s core food rescue operations.

To discuss your next team building event, please call us on 0800 601 609 or email events@kiwiharvest.org.nz.
