Get Involved

Volunteer with us

Our small staff team couldn’t possibly achieve what we do without the time, effort, enthusiasm, and ingenuity of our family of inspiring volunteers. Volunteers help our team on the front line, collecting, sorting, and delivering food, as well as in a number of other roles behind the scenes.

If you would like to get involved in food rescue at any of our locations, whether on the front line, or if you have other skills to offer, please say hello!

We’re currently looking for volunteers in all our locations, please email us if you would like to join our team!


Other ways to get on board

There are loads of other ways to get involved and support KiwiHarvest. Whether you’re looking for something to do on your own, with friends, your team at work, or your class at school, we can provide meaningful ways to engage with our food rescue mission.

Cooking for a Cause

A unique corporate team building experience in New Zealand, our flagship Cooking for a Cause programme is a group cooking session led by a professional chef, creating delicious meals for delivery to our recipient charities.

As well as having a great time, your team will gain real insight into the problem of food waste, how we’re tackling it, and make a real difference for our recipient charities and their clients. So why not spend this year’s team building budget on something that will benefit your local community and get the feel-good factor flowing?

We can tailor the experience for groups of different sizes, and can provide Cooking for a Cause for teams in various different locations in New Zealand and Australia.

Please contact us on hello@kiwiharvest.org.nz if you’d like to find out more about Cooking for a Cause!

Fundraise for us

For every $1 that is raised for KiwiHarvest, we are able to deliver the equivalent of 2 meals to people in need, stopping good food from going to waste in the process.

As a charity with an efficient business model, every donation we receive makes a huge difference to what we are able to achieve. If you, your mates, or your team at work want to fundraise for KiwiHarvest, please get in touch as we’d love to hear from you!
