More than 16,000 eggs and 19 pallets of dairy products have been saved from going to landfill, after the alleged arson at an Auckland Countdown on May 6, Stuff reports. Fair Food, West Auckland’s food rescue charity, stepped in to help package up and redistribute food items from the store so they wouldn’t end up in landfill. According to executive director Veronica Shale, the charity works have been beneficial to more than 50 recipients across Auckland, including victims of family violence, refugees, mental health agencies, teen parenting support groups, homeless people and groups doing community cook-ups.
