What is the #RRT foodbox program.? How does it work, and where does it come from.?

Family Food Box - Every year, thousands of Kiwi families and iwi are struggling to make ends meet with continual rising costs of housing, schooling and everyday food necessities.

The Food Box is an alternative way that Te Ropu Awhina can help bring in relief to families in need. Often situations arise due to a lack of money in the household to provide food for the children.

Our Ope have chosen a selection of nutritious and healthy everyday food items to provide enough food to feed vulnerable family for 1-2 days.

We believe this is one way to show genuine kindness and help to iwi in times of desperate need.

#RRT was pleased to be able to support the Thames-Coromandel, Hauraki and Matamata-Piako District Councils with their respective food parcel programs over the lockdown period.

This included approximately 200 man-hours for this, with other local volunteers helping as well and the food funded by the Civil defence.

RRT offers quality catering assistance to charitable and government organisations confronting some of humankind’s greatest challenges, including natural disasters, heart disease, cancer research and the plight of the homeless. Across the globe, we are mobilised and ready to respond where we are needed most.

#RRT are stoked to be able to support the Jammies for June initiative in Gisborne with 50 blankets and 100 beanies. 😀

“Honestly these are a true blessing for our tamariki” was a comment made from a school staff member who said the children get so much joy from these and they are so very needed.
