Christina has been passionate about social issues since she was a child and has always liked volunteering. She found her passion for helping others, sustainability and hate of waste created the perfect platform to start this food rescue initiative.

Moori is N4N’s Depot Supervisor and fourth generation born and bred in Hastings. Recently moved back home from living overseas. Moori also works full-time night shift most of the year which allows her to travel and see how the world. This makes her appreciate what we have in Aotearoa and drives her to think of how NZ can become a more sustainable society.
What drew Moori to N4N was the obvious gap between the living and actual wage which is increasingly visible on social media. With so many posts requesting food and assistance Moori feels through the N4N philosophy of food rescue this gap can be addressed at the same time as targeting food waste.
Rachel is a Fielding native who moved to Hastings in 1997 and has lived here ever since. Married with 2 boys, Rachel and her husband discovered Nourished for Nil on Facebook and thought it was something they wanted to be a part of. No-one should be hungry here when there is such an excess of abundant fresh food. Rachel loves the fact that at Nourished anyone and everyone is able to get food, without judgement or shame.
One of the original members of N4N, Nikki Grew up in Taupo and moved to the Hawkes Bay with her children in 2007, so they could go to school here. Nikki has spent much of her life trying to do her bit for Mother Earth by composting and recycling. Her dream would be to see society change from being a throwaway to a reuse and fix it society. There is so much waste food around, and being part of Nourished means Nikki can address this on a larger scale
