Papatoetoe Food Hub tackling south Auckland obesity

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:25 pm on 15 July 2019

There's been a LOT in the news recently about high levels of obesity in South Auckland, and the lack of affordable, healthy food options.

So a new group's sprung up to help out: it's called the Papatoetoe Food Hub and it's all about making it easier for people to get good kai instead of heading down to the local fast food outlet.

George Makapatama is the South Auckland manager for the Healthy Families organisation, which is supporting the project, and joins us to discuss.
