Fair Food

Fair Food is Auckland’s first food rescue charity, working to deliver its vision of “feeding people, not landfill.” This dynamic West Auckland organisation has delivered on its strong environmental and social goals since 2011.

Over 200 givers have collectively raised $112,698.99 for Fair Food. That has enabled delivery of the equivalent of 338,097 good meals for people in need across Auckland.

What we do

Every day, Fair Food rescues, sorts and re-distributes surplus food from retailers, growers and manufacturers across Auckland. Our daily food collections not only divert food from landfill but also nourish more than 4,000 families each week by providing them with a regular source of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, eggs and milk.

We partner with over 40 frontline community groups who support asylum seekers, young parents, those sleeping rough, mental health agencies, women and children experiencing domestic violence and many more, to provide free food to those who need it most. 

In July 2021, Fair Food rescued over 43,000 kgs of food, creating 125,000 meals for our communities and saving over 34 tonnes of toxic greenhouse gases from reaching the atmosphere. 

For every $1 donated we can re-distribute three meals back into our community so we can keep on feeding people, not landfill!

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!
