New Zealand Food Network

The New Zealand Food Network is increasing the supply of food to community food services by distributing bulk surplus and donated food from food producers, growers, and wholesalers to food hubs around Aotearoa New Zealand on an 'as required' basis. These food hubs will then distribute the food on to local foodbanks and other community food providers.
