Kaibosh Food Rescue Fundraiser

Le Cordon Bleu New Zealand recently hosted the annual Kaibosh Food Rescue fundraising event called Kaimahi. For every $20 received in proceeds from the event, Kaibosh could provide the equivalent of 33 meals to those in our community who need it most. The student-run raised $1,100.00 or 1,815 meals.

As a requirement for the Bachelor of Culinary Arts and Business Volume and External Catering course, second year students are required to design and develop a concept, work out logistics, cook, serve and market the event. This provides them with an excellent opportunity to put into practice their theoretical learning in a live environment. It is also a great opportunity for them to learn more about food waste and food insecurity.

Le Cordon Bleu New Zealand is delighted to partner with Kaibosh for the third year raising awareness about food poverty and food waste. The event is a fun and easy way to make a real difference to people in the community who are struggling.
