Fresh Choice in Glen Eden and Ranui are supporting a community initiative to increase access to good food. 

Our Activator Michele Eickstaedt and Kaiwhakahau Diana Neru held two meetings over two weeks at Waitemata Rugby Football Club where community members came together to share ideas and recipes as part of a $10 recipe challenge.

The challenge was to create recipes for a family of 6, for $10 a meal. Ideas and recipes went towards developing the content for a kai bag and together, the group developed a logo, tag line and branding. 

The 'Local Choice' kai bags will be available at both Fresh Choice supermarkets from May 8th 2017. 

Love Food Hate Waste supported by Auckland Council are also partnering with this project to provide input into reducing waste while cooking the kai bag recipes.
