As Aucklanders struggle with the city’s extended lockdown, a joint effort has seen a marae, a social enterprise and a Viaduct restaurant team up to help those in need, Stuff reports. The Everybody Eats restaurants were unable to open due to lockdown, but still had access to rescued food. Keen to see unused food put to good use, founder Nick Loosley proposed a new project: ready-to-eat dinners for families in need. Teaming up with volunteers from Papatūānuku Kōkiri Marae, the venture sees smiling teams in full PPE hand out everything from fish heads to groceries, sanitary products and veggies – all the essentials for a community hit hard by Covid-19.
