Kai Ora Fund

 ‘Healthy Kai, Healthy Whānau, Healthy Communities’ 

A Partnership between Te Tai Tokerau PHO and Far North District Council


The Kai Ora Fund has been made possible from funding contributed by the Far North District Council and Te Tai Tokerau Primary Health Organisation.   The intention of the fund is to support community projects that improve food security for people in the Far North District.

All New Zealanders should have sufficient access to healthy food that is affordable and safe to eat.

In New Zealand many people and communities have limited food choices and feel anxious and stressed about how to acquire the food they need (Coates et al. cited in Smith, 2010).  We want our communities to have an accessible, affordable and safe food supply for current and future generations and to be resilient to future disruption or unavailability of food due to various risk factors including droughts, fuel shortages and economic instability.

We are looking for innovative projects that address food security, benefit the wider community and support employment in the region.

The fund has run for three years and funded some amazing community initiatives, projects and ideas. This fund is available in 2018, details will be provided in due course when they are finalised.
