Our new Food Recovery program has dramatically increased W.E.G.C.S.S.’ capacity to receive large food donations from all sources. These are processed into prepared foods to be shared back into the community through the Food Bank and our other food programs.
We often receive fresh produce, meats, eggs and flour as donations, which the Food Recovery program turns into soups, stews, baked goods, side dishes and seasonal treats. Our menu is very seasonal and is inspired and fuelled according to the goods donated.
Donors include locals with gardens, farmers in the Valley, retailers in Nelson and the Valley, and corporate donors. With our new walk-in cooler and freezer, plus the staff and volunteers of Food Recovery, we can now say yes to most donations.
We would like to thank our generous partners, funders and donors for all their support. Information on the organisations that support W.E.G.C.S.S. can be found on Our Generous Funders. If you would like to support our programs please find out more at Support us.
