The Nelson Environment Center in New Zealand is all set to revolutionize the face of reducing food wastage with their new campaign called the ‘Food rescue service’
The organization is set to collaborate with retailers and producers to rescue surplus food. The food items that they are planning to collect will be the ones that is “good enough to eat but not good enough to sell”.
“Food rescue is a simple yet powerful concept. With so many families experiencing food poverty, rescuing quality edible food just makes sense. Often the food is discarded because it is cosmetically imperfect, or there were supply chain or stock rotation issues which created surplus.” A spokesperson said.
The organization is now looking for funds to buy food sorting tables, refrigerators and will also require volunteers.
