Give A Little for Kaivolution

Our first Kaivolution van has maxed out and we need another van and van driver to ensure that we can rescue all the good food that is available before it goes to the landfill.

With 60,000 kilos of food rescued since Kaivolutions inception in October last year, food donations are coming in thick and fast.Donations of food are also likely to increase in the spring when there is an abundance of delicious Waikato fruits and vegetables. Lots of food will be available for rescue right before the holiday period and we need another van so that we can collect it and redistribute it to those in need.

Another Kaivolution van and van driver will ensure that more good food is rescued. Rather than being discarded to landfill, all the food that Kaivolution rescues will feed those in need.
