About Satisfy Food Rescue

It all began in March 2014 when a group of like-minded individuals got together to discuss setting up a food rescue organization in North Canterbury. 


From this Satisfy Food Rescue was born. We are all passionate about reducing food wastage and making healthy food available to everyone.
