We did good New Zealand! Now is the time to #SupportLocal and let someone else cook dinner for a change.

We’ve seen some incredible mahi over the last few weeks as regions and organisations pull together lists of restaurants, cafes and hospitality businesses who are choosing to operate during Level 3.

Here is a round-up of the platforms that will help us all find where to eat and who to support throughout Aotearoa...
