Satisfy Food Rescue is based in Kaiapoi, North Canterbury, New Zealand. 

We work collaboratively with local food retailers and community organisations to re-direct surplus perishable food that would otherwise have been destined for landfill or animal feed to those in the community who most need it. 

Our focus is on the Waimakariri and Hurunui Districts; with the majority of our food donors and recipient organisations located in Rangiora, Kaiapoi, Oxford and  Amberley.

Thriving, strong, satisfied and sustainable community

Twelve Baskets, Oxford

Satisfy is doing an amazing job and as a church we are so grateful to have your support. I don't think you realise how many smiles, sighs of relief from mums, and all the little children out there who have no need to have hungry tummies. I know that our recipients immediately thank us, but please know that we see this as in partnership with Satisfy Food Rescue. Bless you all and thank you.

Hope Community Trust, Rangiora

The food we receive from Satisfy reaches far and wide. We are able to add this to our weekly food parcels for people who are really struggling. The food is also taken to two local camping grounds weekly which helps their permanent residents . Low income individuals and families regularly come to us so this enables us to help in a way we wouldn't otherwise be able to. 

Latimer Soup Kitchen, Christchurch

Our guests/clients now receive fruit and vegetables regularly from Satisfy to take away with them. We know without a doubt that we would not be able to feed that amount of people without the ongoing support we receive from Satisfy and fear that people would go away hungry. We are extremely grateful to Satisfy and look forward to a contuing good relationship with them to help feed the needy and homeless in our city.
