Lockdown Fuels Food Poverty Concerns

Schools taking part in Ka Ora, Ka Ako | Healthy Lunches in Schools Programme, have faced uncertainty for their students amid the latest COVID lockdown levels. With large numbers of children taking part in both breakfast schemes and the Healthy Lunches programme, to not have those resources in place during lockdown had many concerned.

Luckily Auckland is at Alert Level 3, meaning kids are allowed to go back to school if they need to, and the rest of the country is at Alert Level 2, with school operating with increased health and safety measures.

With this in mind, Restaurant & Café thought it was important to remind schools and potential suppliers about the ongoing work of the School Lunch programme and how it can benefit the community as well as your business.
