We've now given 1,820,208 lunches to Kiwi kids.

What Our Schools Say


Every child deserves a healthy school lunch.

When you help us feed Kiwi kids at school, there are immediate positive effects in their behaviour, their learning, food security and their general well being.  


But you don't have to take our word for it! Let's hear it from the teachers.  


"We thank you for your support of the Raranga Matihiko programme this year and over the past four years. We couldn’t have delivered the programme without your support and the generosity of your teams.


Sadly due to COVID we have had to cancel classes at all sites for the rest of Term 4. The team are disappointed to not be teaching but the safety of our tamariki is our priority. Our amazing team are continuing to work with teachers and students online as much as they can.


This is our last year of delivery of the programme and we have appreciated the support you have given to our team and more importantly, for the tamariki that we work with. You have made a difference and we thank you for your support.


We hope you and your teams have a great rest of the year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year".

"We are very excited to continue on with Eat My Lunch. The kids are loving the lunches and it has made the teachers lives easier.” – Mt Cook School Principal Lliam Carran

“Our thanks to you and your team for the wonderful work you do!” - Kyran, Kahurangi Principal

"Thank you for your support. It is very much appreciated.” – Geoff Hall Rongotai College

Food security for hungry minds


New Zealand child poverty statistics continue to rise and unfortunately, this is unlikely to change anytime soon.


Thankfully, the Eat My Lunch Give a Lunch programme allows New Zealanders the chance to make a REAL difference in their community.


When children can rely on a healthy lunch at school it helps them feel secure, included, and brings a smile to their face.
