We've now given 1,724,111 lunches to Kiwi kids.


Every time you Buy any of our meal offerings (breakfasts, lunches, morning/afternoon teas, grazing platters or picnic boxes) from us, we Give a lunch to a child in need. We call it Buy One Give One.

The ‘Give’ lunches include three items: a freshly made, wholemeal sandwich with chicken/ham/tuna & salad, carrot/apple/mandarin/banana and a home-baked treat.  Lisa & Michael have a strong philosophy that only food they would give their own children would go in these lunches.  So, you’ll never see anything processed, with a long shelf-life or filled with sugar.

We currently Give lunches to approximately 87 schools in Auckland and Wellington which can be seen on our Volunteers page.  Please click here to see our full list of schools in all these locations.  We also have many schools on our waiting list!

Although most of our schools are decile 1 & 2, we recognise that higher rated schools also require lunches. Each school identifies and distributes lunches to the children who need them.

Since 2015, Eat My Lunch have Given over 1,700,000 lunches to hungry kids in need. We're very proud of this achievement, but know we can do more. So the more you Buy the more we can Give.

We’re a ‘Social Enterprise’.  This is a business which is created to further a social purpose in a financially stable way.

Volunteers who range from office workers, sports teams to CEO’s come in every morning and make & deliver the kid’s Give lunches. It’s a really special part of Eat My Lunch as we can welcome in everyone who wants to play a part and be part of something special. It must be a great feeling as we have a waitlist until Jan 2020!

Social Enterprises are more prominent across the world but only really starting to gain an understanding and traction recently.  For example, the UK has over 70,000 social enterprises, contributing 24billion pounds to the economy and employing a million people. (https://www.socialenterprise.org.uk/What-is-it-all-about)
