Funding Sponsors

Thank you to all our sponsors (past and present) who without their support we would not be able to assist residents in your local community.  

KCA relies on the generosity of our financial donors - payroll giving from our supporters, corporate sponsorship, 1 off donations from the general public,  grants and bequests.  This support allows us to provide our service free of charge to our partner agencies.  We ensure that we run as efficiently as we can at 66 cents a kg (* as of the 31st March 2021).

At the start of 2022 we reduced our operational costs to 1 paid staff.  This paid staff is our co-founder Tracy.   Our next biggest cost is our warehousing to store and sort the food and non-food donations.  KCA also purchases in stock using donations received for this purpose.  By purchasing from our sponsors we get the best prices.  This stock supplements items that our food rescue program doesn't receive a lot of.  It can be anything from tinned goods, to toiletries such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, and feminine hygiene.

Over the years, we’ve been generously funded by the following grant making organisations.

Community Organisation Grants Scheme (COGS) - Hutt, Wellington and Whitiera
