Healthy Families Waitakere Activator Michele Eickstaedt gained feedback and input from community on some cheap, easy recipes for families. Together the group came up with a 'Local Choice' - a list of ingredients for 5 dinner meals, to feed a family of 6, for under $50.

Exclusive to Fresh Choice in Ranui and Glen Eden, the Local Choice free recipe booklets with ingredients are now available in store with many giveaways and prizes for those who get involved.

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

Michele also partnered with Fresh Choice and Love Food Hate Waste to roll out Local Choice.

Each week. Fresh Choice staff rearrange the supermarket layout to make it easier for people to purchase the ingredients, and customers receive free reusable Love Food Hate Waste shopping bags when purchasing the food.
