9 ways to feed a Kiwi kid

9 ways to feed a Kiwi kid

Since day one, we’ve been committed to feeding Kiwi kids in need.

Food insecurity and child poverty are widespread throughout New Zealand families and, Covid19 has played a big part in the growth of this problem.   

Fortunately, Eat My Lunch have lots of ways individuals and businesses can help Give healthy school lunches to kids that need them.   


  1. Order your lunch from us regularly

With work and home commitments, school drop-offs and pick-ups, food shopping, exercise, me-time, partner-time, and family-time - it all adds up to NO TIME at all.

Give yourself a break and make your lunch our problem.  Once a week when you don’t have to think about it.  Once a week when a child is tucking into a healthy lunch, all thanks to you. Lots of dietary options available too.

  1. Volunteer

Eat My Lunch volunteer mornings are legendary. Our Auckland and Wellington Give coordinators make your morning fun and rewarding, and we don’t subject you to bad music or bad coffee. This is a great way to connect with your team, share their volunteer experience with customers and help kids close to home.
