7.163 million food items removed from the waste stream – Supporting Just Zilch

Just Zilch

Our Marketing Manager Ashley has chosen Just Zilch as her #SmartPackGivingBack Charity of choice this week because she appreciates how Rebecca and the team collect what would otherwise be wasted and return it to those in need.

It’s safe to say we would all be quite shocked at how much food goes to waste every single day. The supermarkets, cafes. schools and all other food based businesses will all have some sort left over goods at the end of the day, so 11 years ago Rebecca saw an opportunity to help her community.

Just Zilch is located at 248 Featherston Street Pamerston North and has 2 shifts where they open their doors to the public: 1:00 – 2:30pm & 4:30 – 6pm. On average they support around 250 people with food and goods each day and that in turn supports the family members they take it home to which would in reality be closer to 750 a day!
