Fair Food

Fair Food is changing lives one bite at a time. We’re a creative solution to the massive problem of food waste and food insecurity in Aotearoa.

Over 200 givers have collectively raised $135,372.83 for Fair Food. That means 135,373 people in need received a Fair Food delivery of surplus good food that makes 2 good meals across Auckland.

What We Do.

We partner with supermarkets and food manufacturers to collect their extra produce, meat, dairy and bread to feed people, not landfill.

We partner with over 50 frontline community groups who support asylum seekers, young parents, those sleeping rough, mental health agencies, women and children experiencing domestic violence, school hubs and many more, to provide free food to those who need it most.

Volunteers gain confidence cooking from scratch while preparing zero waste meals in our Conscious Kitchen. In 2023, Fair Food’s team of 2,095 volunteers rescued and shared enough fresh food for 1,711,509 meals. By keeping this nutritious food from going to landfill, we reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 1587 tonnes a year while creating community resilience to adapt to climate change.

For every $10 donated we can share enough food for a week’s worth of meals to nourish someone in need.

As a giver we’ll never hassle you for more money, call you or send you envelopes in the mail.

How it Works

Choose your charities

We’ve partnered with 15 trusted Kiwi-based charities. Choose one, some, or all. Tell us how much you want to give and how often. Set up once, then we’ll do the rest. Easy!

100% to charity

When you donate to a charity via One Percent Collective, a dollar given is a dollar received. The charity gets 100% of your donations. We don't take a cut.

See your impact

We’ll make sure you know what your dollars are doing. The difference they're making, the lives they're changing, and the stories they're creating.*

Don't just take our word for it.

I like the cause, the simplicity, and the flexibility of One Percent Collective. Keep up the great work!
