Last week our board members rolled up their sleeves and delivered Kai Boxes to some of the Neighbourhood Trust’s Mairehau and St Albans whanau.

“During the lockdown the NHT has been blessed with the ability to be able to supply food boxes to people in our area,” says Alan Bastin, NHT Board Member. “I have had the privilege of helping with the distribution of these Kai Boxes and it is great to be able to do something practical to bless people who we love working with. The enjoyment of giving something so needed to people, and the smiles we receive in return, has been one of my highlights from this unusual time.”

The NHT get referrals for Kai Boxes from our community, those involved in our programmes, and church families. We have partnered with Te Puawaitanga, who are a kaupapa Maori NGO, to make this special service possible.

You can order a Kai Box for someone you know, or for yourself, by emailing Murdo at
