Ka Ora, Ka Ako – Healthy School Lunches

The Ka Ora, Ka Ako – healthy school lunches programme aims to reduce food insecurity by providing access to a nutritious lunch in school every day.
Regular, nutritious food is vital for children’s physical, mental and educational development. It affects their ability to focus, concentrate and learn.

Around one in five children in New Zealand live in households that struggle to put enough good-quality food on the table. In communities facing greater socio-economic barriers, 40% of parents run out of food sometimes or often.
