turns it into cafe-quality food
A South Auckland social enterprise has come up with a community-based solution to fix our "broken food system".
The Papatoetoe Food Hub was started four years ago to rescue produce that normally gets thrown away, by repurposing it into affordable, cafe-quality food. The enterprise was set up by the Southern Initiative and Auckland Council's Eke Panuku Development who gave the location for the Hub.
Hub director Raj Ramakrishna says we live in a time when there is so much food waste yet so much food need.
