important information for volunteers.

If you are booking for a group, please ensure that this page is sent to each of your staff members to review - thank you.


Eat My Lunch is a business driven by a social purpose – to ensure that no child goes hungry at school. Since June 2015, we have Given over 1,500,000 lunches to Kiwi kids at 79 schools in Auckland and Wellington.

We do this through a Buy One, Give One model. Simply by Buying a lunch from us, it means that a lunch is also Given to a hungry Kiwi kid.

While we employ 35+ employees to make a lunch for paying customers, we are so grateful for the 25,000+ people so far who have chosen to help us make the Give lunches for the kids, including you!
