Whanau cooking for whanau, how Kura Kai feeds the community

From Afternoons, 1:35 pm on 29 January 2024

What began as a request for freezer meals on social media back in 2020, has developed into Kura Kai - a regular fixture in 38 schools around the country, with 1000 volunteers, having cooked over 40,000 meals to date.

Kura Kai works to keep freezers in schools well stocked with meals for anyone that needs them.

It's all run on the motto of "whānau cooking for whānau".

General manager Marie Paterson, joined the team back in 2021, she explains the kaupapa to Jesse.
