2017 Kai Ora Fund

Healthy Kai, Healthy Whanau, Healthy Communities

The deadline for Applications is  Friday 17th March 2017 at 9am

The 9am deadline enables all applications received to be acknowledged before the weekend.

All sucessful applicants are expected to attend  the Kai Ora Fund workshop to be held on Friday the 5 of May from 10am until 3pm in Kaikohe.

The intention of this fund is to support community projects and initiatives that:

  • Improving food access for people in the Far North
    Our definition of food access includes having access to food in general, or having access to sufficient food and/or food of sufficient quality and integrity, plus the concepts of food equity, food resilience and food sustainability. It will also be extended to food availability in conditions of extreme need such as widespread disaster, droughts, and so on, and to initiatives that help people in Far North Communities to eat healthier foods.
  • prioritise lower socio-economic communities (and in particular children), or people with food security and accessibility issues
  • increase the availablility, promotion or utilisation of local food
  • increase community resilience
  • promote community involvement and have benefits for the local community
  • increase regional economic development and local employment opportunities.

This fund provides ‘seed funding’ and we will prioritise projects that, once started, can sustain themselves without reliance on continued Kai Ora funding.
