Support Wanaka AFC & Wastebusters Every Bite!

11 Apr

Wānaka AFC is stoked to be the recipient of Wastebusters’ Every Bite programme ticket sales! 

This is an awesome opportunity for you and your whānau to get behind the club, and show your support for us and an amazing local organisation doing epic work in our community!

Join their food appreciation programme for two in-person events, and some dedicated tasks for you to action at home during the four weeks. It’s low key, with easy achievable goals that will result in food waste reduction (and save you money).

What to expect:

  • Join us and local chef and zero waste champion, Evelyn Vallillee, on May 1st 6pm, at the Lake Wānaka centre to learn practical tips to keep on top of your grocery shop with minimal waste (there’ll be tasty kai to eat too)
  • Engage in one or all of our food appreciation tasks during the four weeks: track your food waste, make an ‘eat now shelf’, create something new with your leftovers
  • Join the conversation on our dedicated Facebook group (or e-mail if you are not on FB) , and share ideas and learnings with other participants
  • Meet back with us on May 23rd 6pm, at the Lake Wānaka Centre to have a kōrero about your journey 


“Every Bite is a fantastic programme to help households see how small tweaks and
changes to their habits can drastically reduce the amount of food waste that they
generate, saving grocery costs in the process."

“Homes in Aotearoa are throwing away over 157,000 tonnes of edible food every year
- that’s enough to feed everyone in the Upper Clutha region for more than 20 years.
We know communities in the region care about minimising their waste throughout
their households and we’re really looking forward to helping people move toward
greater food resourcefulness” 

- Toby Butland, Wastebusters Campaign Lead


The four week Every Bite programme costs just $10, with all proceeds going back to the club, and we’d love for you to join Wastebusters in this fantastic programme.
