AFRA launched in 2021 with an initial 17 founding member organisations – we now support over 30 food rescues around the motu and we’re still growing!
The AFRA membership encompasses the spectrum of food rescue operating models.
- Community food hubs distribute rescued and donated food directly to community organisations.
- Mixed-models operate similar to Community Hub Model and are connected to enviro hubs, community kitchens, and foodbanks
- Freestore organisations provide rescued food directly to individuals.
Many of our members are also food hubs for the New Zealand Food Network.
