South African-born chicken joint Nando's is slinging chips for a cause. From Monday, 26 August to Sunday, 1 September, the Cans for Chips initiative will see Nando's restaurants across the country hand out regular-size servings of its PERi-PERi chips in return for a can of non-perishable food. All proceeds and cans collected from the Wellington drive will be donated to the Wellington City Mission.

There will be a maximum of two servings of PERi-PERi chips per person, and the full Nando's condiment range will be available for those who want some extra heat.

The restaurant chain has a long-standing relationship with the Mission; every day the company distributes left-over chicken to the charity's community drop-in centre. This year, the chain's goal is to collect over 2000 cans so they have a healthy stockpile heading into Christmas.

Outside of Wellington the cans will go to Hamilton's Kaivolution, Bay of Plenty's Good Neighbour, Christchurch's City Mission and Dunedin's KiwiHarvest.

There are three Nando's locations in Wellington.
