Many people don't have the support of family and friends nearby in the first few weeks after a baby arrives. The simplicity of providing a meal to families of a newborn or when there is an ill family member means so much. I remember the days when dinner was the last thing I had thought about and how the best laid plans can go to custard when there is a newborn and toddler running around the house!
I love being a Mum but some days are just harder than others! I have enjoyed meeting amazing people, making new friends, connecting with our community and raising the awareness of Bellyful and what we offer. I am proud to be part of Bellyful, and Branch Coordinator since 2012, and look forward to seeing our branch and Bellyful grow. Franklin is Bellyful's original and oldest branch.
Leanne is married to Craig and is Mum to two school-aged boys Jaxon and Zavier and works full-time.
I joined Bellyful Franklin in 2014 as a way to meet people in the community. It has led me on a journey that I didn’t expect.The idea of providing free meals to help new mums and families who are struggling really resonated. Having a baby is hard. Even if you have great support structures there are always days when everything turns to custard. The last thing you can think of is “what’s for dinner?” The comfort of having a meal in the freezer, prepared by someone locally is really powerful. It’s such a simple thing, but this simple act of kindness is what I love about Bellyful. Every Bellyful branch operates locally in their community. We fundraise and support families’ right here. Our team is drawn from our community. Money raised in Franklin is used to support Franklin families. I’m really proud of that. I love being a part of the Franklin team, they are an amazing group of volunteers who give and give and give. If you or someone you know could do with some Bellyful meals, then we encourage you to share some Bellyful love – head to www.bellyful.org.nz and complete a referral form ♥
