Students Host Lunch for Local Food Rescue Organisation
Students from our Bachelor of Culinary Arts and Business Programme, as a part of their Volume and External Catering Course, prepared a delicious 4 course lunch for our friends at Kaibosh Food Rescue.
Kaibosh is New Zealand’s first food rescue organisation based here in Wellington, their vision is ‘Zero Food Poverty, Zero Food Waste’. They connect members of the food industry with community groups to ensure that surplus food reaches the mouths that need it most. This lets community groups spend less of their limited resources feeding others and stops good food wastefully being disposed of.

For 7 years Le Cordon Bleu New Zealand students have designed and catered a lunch event in thanks to Kaibosh’s supporters and stakeholders. The event gives the students the opportunity to practically apply principles learned in the classroom, such as the logistics of internal/external catering, inventory & portion control, profitability, staffing, chain-of-command, and much more.
Students tired but proud of their hard work
This year the theme was ‘Four Colours of Autumn’ featuring four dishes inspired by the autumn season. The food and presentation were fantastic with the event being a great success. We hope to return to Kaibosh next year for another unforgettable experience.
