The Beginning of the Kairos Free Store in Christchurch

Written by Influence

Kairos LogoBased off the first Free Store that was founded in Wellington in 2010, and part of the Free Store Movement Aotearoa. The Kairos Free Store in Christchurch will be the first to open in the South Island - due to open its doors mid 2018. We are a non for profit, charitable organisation, run 100% by volunteers.

When you combine hungry people in the community, the masses of quality, wasted food from cafes & eateries daily + passionate people who want to get involved. Something beautiful is bound to happen...

The  Mission

Is to create a space where anyone is welcome. To see food going in to the hands of people who need, and creating friendships with those on the margins of society. Kairos Free Store is relational, not transactional. It's a space to come as you are - no questions asked. 

How you can get involved

We are looking for a team of volunteers to ensure the Free Store can operate smoothly, with purpose and efficiency.
