Big Feed telethon raising money for foodbanks

From First Up, 5:52 am on 12 December 2023

Here in Aotearoa we love a good telethon, and this Thursday there's a huge one!

The Big Feed Telethon kicks off at 6am and will be running 14 hours - live online - until 8pm Thursday.

It's run by Meat the Need - that's meat with an A - a rural group who donates milk and mince to food banks around the country.

They've got a bunch of prizes up for auction on Trade Me, including tickets to join All Black legend Sir Michael Jones in a corporate box to watch the Chiefs play Moana Pasifika.

Sir Michael runs a food bank in Auckland. He told Nathan Rarere what's going on.
