Kids are back in their classrooms and we’re thinking about lunchboxes… so there’s no better time to talk about Eat My Lunch and why we’re contributing to its Give TwoTM programme to give lunch to Kiwi kids in need.
It’s hard to concentrate with an empty tummy
Around 25,000 children go to school hungry in New Zealand every day. Eat My Lunch is a social enterprise that helps Kiwi kids in need with its buy one, give one lunches. Its goal is to ensure no child at school goes hungry. So far, they’ve given 1,287,581 lunches to Kiwi kids and the number of lunches given grows every day!
A good lunch helps kids in the classroom
We’re on board
It’s clear that Eat My Lunch’s gifted lunches make a real difference. This week we gave 50 lunches to kids in need through its Give TwoTM programme. Give TwoTM means that instead of buying one and giving one, you can give both lunches away – to kids who need it.
Over the last few months some of our colleagues in Wellington have also stepped up to spread butter and make sandwiches. These Asteron Life team members used their volunteer leave day to join the Eat My Lunch team and make lunch for local kids in need.
You can get involved too, here’s how:
- Grab lunch from Eat My Lunch
Order your lunch and automatically give a lunch to a kid who needs it.
- Give TwoTM
Already got lunch plans? Give two lunches away!
Like our teammates, join Eat My Lunch’s volunteer force!
