Good Neighbour is helping bring the neighbour back into neighbourhoods in Tauranga.
Good Neighbour has four main arms – Urban Mahi, Food Rescue, Community Kitchen and Whanau Care.
Our Food Rescue service diverts over 2 tonnes of food from landfill every day by collecting food that is good enough to eat, but not good enough to sell from local supermarkets, redistributing this food to over 70 local charities and social support agencies. We also convert collected food into nutritious meals.
Our Urban Mahi Team complete backyard projects, process & deliver warming firewood, and grow healthy produce in our community gardens.
Our Whanau Care Team offer wrap around support to whanau ensuring they have access to the tools and resources they require to thrive and flourish.
Good Neighbour offers our community a hand up, not a hand out encouraging them to work towards goals that enrich their lives and to give back to their community.
With help from Acorn Foundation funding we currently employ 13 staff either full or part time and coordinate an active volunteer team of almost 150 per week.
