As the region's only non-faith based, non-politically aligned food rescue and relief organization, at FBANZ our culture is our personality. Open and totally transparent, FBANZ is made up of our values, beliefs, underlying assumptions, attitudes, and behaviours. Respect for the individual is an imperative – judgement is just not in the cards. Our only mission is to rescue food, sort and redistribute it to those with the immediate need.
Ancilliary to our food rescue is the impact we make on the environment. Through our work landfill emissions are minimized through a reduction in waste – benefiting all citizens with a healthier environment.
We believe that an organization’s culture is made up of all of the life experiences each employee or volunteer brings to our organisation especially influenced by the passion of our founders and trustees in their role in the decision making and strategic direction of FBANZ; however we believe that everyone involved with us has an impact on what FBANZ has become.
This is our culture!
