We are a local non-profit organisation whose sole aim it is to rescue surplus food and redistribute it to the local Hawke’s Bay community on the same day.

The team is comprised of committed volunteers whose shared passion is reducing waste and helping others.

Nourished for Nil will not discriminate, judge or label any community members who find themselves needing their service.

The Nourished for Nil project aims to provide food to all people and families including those who do not qualify for assistance from other organisations.

Sponsor Spotlight: Melt & Co

Nourished for Nil's food rescue mission wouldn't be possible without the generous support of our food sponsors.  One of these being Havelock North icecreamery Melt & Co. Melt

“If you are ashamed of going yourself for this type of handout,, think of a neighbor, who is unable to take advantage of ‘nourished for nil” and go check it out for them. I saw kids giggling over a cream bun, workmen enjoying a yummy sandwich and some, who hesitated for a long time on the other side of the street, before having the courage to see for themselves.

The volunteers wore gloves when handling food, which was kept cool and fresh in chilly bins. They were LOTS of smiles.

Spread the good word: this is a wonderful venture.”
