Kaibosh Food Rescue

Life at Kaibosh over the past seven months has been about adaption. Like many New Zealand organizations, we've had to make changes to the way we work to continue providing good food to those in need. 
Post-lockdown Kaibosh reopened the Kāpiti-Horowhenua and Hutt Valley sites and welcomed the return of egular volunteer shifts. After sorting up to 2,500 kg of kai a day with just a small team of staff and volunteers, they breathed a sigh of relief when things returned to a new-normal. With the rearrival of Level 2 they had to adjust once more, putting volunteer programme on hold again and reducing the amount of people entering the Kaibosh sites.
Alongside the ongoing changes, they have many reasons to celebrate. Across all three sites (Wellington City, the Hutt Valley and Kāpiti-Horowhenua) they are rescuing and redistributing up to 40,000 kg each month, providing the equivalent of 114,000 meals and reducing carbon emissions by 14,400 kg.
Through the New Zealand Food Network they are receiving large volumes of food donated from producers, growers and wholesalers around the country. In the last month they’ve received pallets of cereal, meat, yoghurt, produce and other amazing kai. This food has gone out into the community, providing nutritious food for vulnerable people. 
If you wish to donate, you can do this here https://www.kaibosh.org.nz/donate-now/

DCM

Want to be part of the solution to homelessness?
We need experienced, qualified kaimahi to join our vibrant team. You will be willing to roll your sleeves up and do whatever tasks are required to support people who are at risk of homelessness. You will work with them to access and sustain housing and journey to greater wellbeing. We have roles based at DCM in central Wellington and some based and working in the Hutt Valley.
It would be great if you have a relevant qualification in social work, mental health or drug and alcohol studies, but more importantly you will need excellent rapport building skills, be non-judgmental, highly organised and a good team player. A demonstrated knowledge and understanding of Tikanga Māori is absolutely essential; proven relevant experience would be an advantage, as would a driver’s licence.
For 50 years, Downtown Community Ministry (DCM) has worked on some of the biggest problems facing Wellington, supporting the most marginalised people to break the cycle of homelessness, and to find recovery, wholeness and reconnection with their cultural roots and whānau. We have a proven track record of assisting people to put their lives back together – you can read a wide range of success stories at https://www.dcm.org.nz/success-stories
To learn more about the roles available go to https://www.dcm.org.nz/jobs
