Community fridge and pantry
Kai Conscious community fridge and pantry
The community fridge and pantry was set up in 2019, thanks to grant funding from the Waiheke Local Board. Everyone is invited to take the rescued food, which we collect from local businesses three times a week, and that is also donated by households with surplus food in the kitchen or the vege garden. The Kai Conscious community fridge and pantry helps to further reduce food waste and reinforce a supportive and ‘waste-not’ community mindset.
The fridge and pantry are emptied fairly quickly, so if you are in need of food, please also consider popping into Waiheke Budgeting Service located at no. 6 Putiki Road opened on Tuesday 9-4, Wednesday 9-2, Thursday 9-2 and Fridays 9-2 pm
