The Trust Tairāwhiti distribution of $717,195 goes towards two community kitchens adding value to rescued kai and providing a place for people to learn how to prepare meals for themselves and their whānau.

The distribution allows SuperGrans to deliver healthy, ready-to-go meals where they are needed most.

Between March and July, SuperGrans distributed 650 kai parcels, each containing enough for three meals a day for a small family, equating to 20,000 meals in all.
