The elimination of food poverty in Aotearoa New Zealand
Aotearoa New Zealand is a compassionate innovative well connected society.
Across Aotearoa New Zealand social service agencies, social enterprises and food industries are giving out more and more food as a response to food poverty and insecurity. As more initiatives emerge to meet this growing issue of hunger within our communities no long term systematic solutions are currently resolving this. This compassionate charitable response creates a level of dependency on this charitable system. This dependency lies not only with those who receive from it but with our society as a whole as we continue this cycle of food insecurity.
We are capable of thinking outside the box for empowered, community driven, connected solutions.
The Kore Hiakai Zero Hunger project is creating a series of conversations with a broad variety of organisations and people, from government to iwi, to social service agencies, to those with lived experience, to food retailers, to design thinkers and beyond to help us find solutions to this complex and ‘wicked’ problem.
We invite you to join us in seeking long term sustainable solutions to end food poverty and ensure that all New Zealanders are empowered to source sufficient food in an ongoing way.
Morning tea and lunch are provided including vegetarian and gluten free. Let us know if you have additional dietary requirements.
As this is inner city Wellington parking is limited and we recommended using public transport or car pooling.
