The Free Store is a non-profit organisation that daily redistributes perfectly edible surplus food to those that determine themselves in need of it, right here in the heart of Wellington City. Monday to Friday our committed team of volunteers pick up surplus food from cafés, bakeries and restaurants that wasn't sold that day and would otherwise be thrown out. This food is then given out freely from our shop front.
The Free Store fills a gap in the community where surplus goods aren't currently being used productively through other channels. We seek to work constructively alongside other organisations who are supporting our community.
