Naked Locals Community Donations

Naked Locals celebrates local heroes with its new fair food soup

Naked Locals, the New Zealand premium chilled soup brand, is honouring the work of the Fair Food Trust and Satisfy Food Rescue with a donation of up to $20,000 each.

The Naked Locals Local Heroes Soups was an initiative launched in 2021 to support Satisfy Food Rescue's mission of reducing food waste and offering nutritious meals to kiwis. The soup brands new partnership with The Fair Food Trust aims to continue this goal.

Because of the initiative, in the last year Satisfy Food Rescue was able to purchase a new delivery van and provide 27,000 meals to people in need. 20 cents from every pack of Satisfy Food Rescue Lentil, Potato and Caramelised Onion Soup was donated to the charity.

The new partnership with The Fair Food Trust will see them similarly receive proceeds from the new Naked Locals Pumpkin and Kumara Soup.  In 2021 alone, the charity was able to rescue of 753,000kg of food, and the new funds will be used however they best see fit.

“It’s been incredible to be able to support Satisfy Food Rescue over the last year, and we’re really excited to be a partner with Fair Food this winter. Fair Food is one of the original food rescue charities and has made a huge impact on Aucklanders in need, so it’s a privilege to be able to give back and support this meaningful cause.” Said Mark Roper, Life Health Foods Head of Sales and Marketing.

“Our Local Heroes soups are made with New Zealand-grown vegetables, meaning our customers can enjoy a delicious, convenient lunch or dinner that benefits their local community too.”

The soup collaborations are available to supermarkets now and the charity collaboration can be followed on social media with the hashtags #NakedLocals and #LocalHeroes.
