Delicious Activism!

There are just two days left until our petition closes, calling for a community-led, values based national food strategy for Aotearoa. Over this time we’ve seen a chorus of calls for a food strategy from science and industry as well.

I’m hopeful a framework for New Zealand food is now inevitable, but I worry about the space for our food producers, our communities and eaters at the decision-making table.

Our food system is vast, and remembering the importance of everyone is vital; from farmers to health professionals, hospitality to education and children. Our environment including our animals are all impacted by our food system. And it's important to design a strategy with the Treaty of Waitangi as our guiding constitution.

I’m excited that this call has pulled together over 60 organisations to stand together. It’s not too late! Join us. Sign the petition. Sign up to the newsletter. Come down to the Beehive in Wellington next Wednesday 30th August from 1:00pm to 1:30pm when we’ll be presenting the petition alongside some deliciousness.

It has never been more important to stand together, visioning and working towards a better food system for Aotearoa.

Thank you for your support.

Climate Action Festival: BOP

A first for Tauranga & Western Bay, the Bay of Plenty will be hosting a series of events for the Climate Action Festival from September 11th - 17th. We are particularly excited about the local eatery promos - where they will be encouraging food businesses throughout Tauranga and the Western Bay to provide a dish that is plant-based, organic, made with local ingredients, and/or made using seasonal produce.

There will also be guest speakers, webinars and movie screenings. Head over to Envirohub to check out what's on here.
