Motuhake Māori Food Network to feed 200,000 whanau across Auckland

From Midday Report, 12:44 pm on 31 August 2021

A new network set up by a range of marae and Maori leaders will provide kai to more than 200,000 whanau across Auckland - in response to the kai crisis. Motuhake aims to support whanau during the extended lockdown and has created a network of a range of Maori organisations to work collaboratively to support whanau. The Maori Food Network was a crisis response to the pressures of the lockdown and says there is an immediate need escalating across Maori communities. Chair of Te Puea Memorial Marae Hurimoana Dennis is part of the network and spoke to Māni Dunlop.
