Focus Clubhouse in Dunedin is involved with Food Share...
Focus Clubhouse Foodshare
Food share started off early last year and originally was just a couple of boxes of food on a Wednesday for our members to take home.
Now the Clubhouse members go down to the Food Share depot with the Clubhouse Co-ordinator and pick up food that has been collected from supermarkets around Dunedin. The food is about to pass its “use by date” and instead of being put into the landfill it is distributed around the community to different groups.
The food is brought back to the Clubhouse and divided up into food parcels. Clubhouse members deliver the parcels to people who really benefit from this sharing of a resource that would otherwise go to waste.
