From rescue to restaurant, grant recipient Everybody Eats tackles food waste, food poverty and social isolation one dinner plate and one conversation at a time, in exchange for koha.

More than $55,000 was awarded to Maungakiekie-Tāmaki community groups in the latest round of local grants.

A total of 24 groups will receive funds for costs such as venue hire, administrative expenses, tools and equipment for activities and events supporting the community.

Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board Chair, Maria Meredith says,

“With our limited budget and so many applications coming through, it is always a tough decision to allocate grants to projects that meet more of the criteria than others.
“We would love to help everyone, as all our local groups do a fantastic job at helping others in the community, particularly those that are beyond our reach,” she says.

“Projects we consider to be most eligible are inclusive and supportive of under-represented members of the community and those that align with our communities, environment and heritage, economic and education opportunities,” says Chair Meredith.

“If you didn’t get in this time, please try again in the next round. Your work is much appreciated.”

Local grants are generally available once or twice a year and applicants in Maungakiekie-Tāmaki can apply for up to $10,000.
