Archived: KiwiHarvest: Kai with a (re)Purpose

The first food event dedicated to utilising rescued food!

Silo Park is partnering with KiwiHarvest to bring you Kai with a (re)Purpose. 

KiwiHarvest is an organisation dedicated to rescuing New Zealand's perishable food. The non-profit collect good, surplus fresh food from commercial outlets and distribute it to those in need.

Kai with a (re)Purpose will see five local food truck favourites transform kai rescued from KiwiHarvest into delicious meals for you to enjoy! A percentage of all sales will go back to KiwiHarvest to help them rescue more food to help nourish communities across New Zealand! 

Confirmed food trucks include Judge Bao, The Rolling Pin, Rocoto, Let's Brezel and Lalele Organic Gelato who will serve different dishes with a positive focus on avoiding food waste! 

Come along to eat and learn about avoidable food waste. It will be a flavoursome and fun day for all to enjoy.
