Citizen’s Advice Bureau

The flourishing work by South Kaipara Good Food will be highlighted at the Citizen’s Advice Bureau Helensville’s AGM.
The event is on August 22 at Kaipara Memorial RSA from 10am.
Gemma Donaldson, chief executive of the non-profit organisation, will talk about how they provide the community with access to good food. They also empower people with skills,
confidence, connections and resources to be self-sustainable food-wise. “We’re about building up mana, getting people back on their feet, encouraging community connection and proving this is a community that cares,” she says.
The kai packs with recipes make a difference for people who are going through the stresses and strains of life. The organisation provides services through programmes like Kai Collective Te Awaroa and the Food Secure Plan. It is dependent on generous donations from funding grants and local donors. So far, the collective’s team of volunteers has made and delivered over 7,800 kai packs and 430 Covid isolation packs.
The food secure team rescues kai all over South Kaipara, coordinating cooking classes and planting community gardens through the initiative Kai Grow.
Come and hear Gemma talk about SKFG’s inspirational mahi. If you can make it to the AGM please call 09 420 7162 or email: for your RSVP.
Sharing and caring: Regular volunteer Meke Unasa from Ryman Healthcare, Keith Park Village helps sort out kai packs for South Kaipara Good Food.

You are all invited to the Annual General Meeting of the Citizens Advice Bureau on Monday 22 August, 10am to 11am at the Kaipara Memorial RSA. RSVP to 4207162 or email
