The team at Good Neighbour catered their first ever wedding using only food rescued from local supermarkets, the final menu was up in the air right until the morning of the wedding.
Despite this, the whole team could not be more pleased with how the wedding went.
A young Tauranga couple approached the team at Good Neighbour earlier in the year with the idea of having their dream day catered only using food that was rescued by the organisation.
The couple are very aware of environmental and sustainability issues, but she said they were also very brave.
The morning of the wedding, crates of strawberries became available and were added to the line-up desserts.
The wedding was held in Hamilton and the 130 guests were served up a range of dishes including salads, carved ham, a braised beef and black bean dish, apricot chicken and moroccan lamb.
A grazing platter and a range of desserts were also created by the Good Neighbour team. The wedding cake was made by the mother of the bride and was decorated by Jackie.
