Sherpa delivers for Buttabean Motivation

20th April 2022 By Staff Reporter | | @foodtickernz

Same-day delivery service Sherpa is saving the Buttabean Motivation (BBM) food bank thousands of dollars a week by doing hundreds of free food deliveries around South Auckland.

Dave Letele, founder of BBM – which started as a health and fitness programme and evolved into a full-scale food bank due to Covid-19 – said Sherpa’s involvement also frees up his team member to “get back to their core roles of motivating and helping people in our community be healthier and fitter”.

Sherpa is an Australian technology company that launched six months ago in New Zealand’s last mile delivery sector. Its operating model specialised in two hour deliveries and utilised a crowd-sourced driver pool.
