Feed the Frontlines - Support our Covid-19 heroes

$11,351 of $15,000 goal
Given by 68 generous donors in 6 weeks

Providing free meals to those working on the frontline of NZ's response to Covid-19


Over the coming weeks, hundreds of people are going to be in an unenviable position at the frontline of NZ's response to Covid-19. They are our doctors and nurses working in hospitals and intensive care units, they are our ambulance crews and first responders in the emergency services, and they are the groups and volunteers providing care and support to the most vulnerable people in our communities.

We can't buy more medical equipment, or up-skill people quickly enough to help them. Instead, the Feed the Frontlines campaign is all about making life a little bit easier for these heroes by delivering free, healthy meals to them while they work tirelessly to help NZ get through this crisis.

If you have been wondering what you can do to help, this is your opportunity. Our goal is to raise $10,000. Get involved.

A big thank you to Eat My Lunch - our partners in this campaign. Eat My Lunch will match any meals we purchase through them with a free lunch for a child in need.

We will need to work with other food distributors in some regions but will only use those deemed as essential businesses and operating in compliance with Covid-19 alert level 4 rules, as defined by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.

Donation guide:

- $14 will provide 1 meal for someone on the frontline

- $210 will provide 1 meal for a ward of Intensive Care Nurses
