This morning, the team at the office had the pleasure of being involved in making and packing over 1,900 lunches for Eat My Lunch. Their incredible goal is to ensure that no child at school goes hungry, starting with kids right here in our own backyard. They do this by their 'buy one give one' model.

Can you believe that 1 in 4 Kiwi kids (approx. 290,000) live in poverty and thousands go to school without lunch every day. They want to help change this by making it easier for Kiwis to help Kiwis. How beautiful is that? The team at Eat My Lunch truly are amazing and have created an effective organisation with heart and soul.
Along with about 25 other volunteers, we headed to their kitchen to be part of their production line. It was such a fun morning for the team, and we feel so blessed get an insight into how this incredible social enterprise works. Lovely Janice who was the volunteer coordinator for the morning made us feel so welcome. It's so inspiring to see her passion for seeing kiwi kids thrive, and her dedication to this cause really does show the heart of this organisation.
Thanks for having us, Eat My Lunch!
