Filling Bellies Makes Us Dance!

These smiling faces belong to Bellyful Cookathon volunteers, delighted to be back doing what they love – cooking up a storm so they can fill bellies!

In the first 10 days after lockdown lifted, we cooked more than 1,000 meals at 11 Cookathons around New Zealand, to restock meals given to families while we were at Alert Levels 3 and 4.

We are so proud of our volunteers and the hard work they so happily do for their communities – and are delighted to let you know most of our freezers are now full again.

If you know someone who needs help in the form of some meals right now, send us a referral.

You can help fill bellies by making a donation.
