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 / insecurity. As more initiatives emerge to meet this growing issue of hunger within our communities no long term systematic solutions are 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.
Aotearoa New Zealand is a compassionate innovative well connected society.
We are capable of thinking outside the box for empowered, community driven, connected solutions.
The Kore Hiakai Zero Hunger Project is currently a collective of social service agencies focused on eliminating food poverty in Aotearoa New Zealand through finding lasting, structural, mana enhancing solutions.
We invite you to join us in seeking long term sustainable solutions to end food poverty and to ensure that all New Zealanders are empowered to source sufficient nutritious food in an ongoing way.
