Sharing excess food in a kind way

Ellen Neighbourly Lead from Sandringham

Hi all, whether you have an old cardboard box or a shelf or make a little quirky thing like I have, it is really great to see how well people take up the unprejudiced sharing offer when I put my surplus fruit and rescued bread out there. Everything makes a difference for some people - and the nice thing is, other people are now adding their surplus so it has turned itself into a small Pataka Kai. And I get to pick the odd avocado somebody puts in there as a win-win.
Just take a minute a d think whether you have extra.
