‘Kegs for Christmas’ charity fundraiser

Garage Project Brewery is bringing it’s annual ‘Kegs for Christmas’ charity fundraiser back to Wellington, with all proceeds going to Kaibosh food rescue!

WELLINGTON, New Zealand- 6 December 2017

At Garage Project for the last 4 years we’ve donated 12 kegs to different venues around our home town of Wellington during Christmas, with all the proceeds going to help a food rescue charity called “Kaibosh’.

Kaibosh links the food industry with community groups that support people in need ensuring that quality surplus food reaches those who are struggling rather than being needlessly discarded. This benefits both our community and our environment.

Working in Wellington and the Hutt Valley with the help of a dedicated team of more than 160 volunteers, Kaibosh rescues and sorts food 7 days a week. They deliver up to 20,000kg of quality surplus food each month to community groups that support people in need. This is the equivalent of 57,000 meals provided to those who need it most, as well as a 15,570kg reduction in carbon emissions. We’ve raised nearly $40,000 for Kaibosh in these four years.

We are donating 12 Kegs of GP’s finest brews to the following venues, pouring one day only on December 16th.

HiveMind: Fair Enough? How Should New Zealanders Be Taxed? - Have Your Say

Scoop and PEP invite you to share your issues, ideas and perspectives on the NZ tax system with other New Zealanders using Scoop’s HiveMind tool. This Tax HiveMind is intended to complement and feed into the review being run by the Government-appointed Tax Working Group (TWG), which is looking at the fairness, balance and structure of the tax system with a 10-year time horizon.

We at Scoop and PEP believe that an issue as important as the fairness of the tax regime should be open for discussion, debate and dialogue. Unfortunately, a written submission process just doesn’t encourage the kind of public exchange we think is necessary in a well-functioning democracy. More>>
