North Harbour Stadium kitchen to help feed 9000 school kids per day

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

More than 9000 kids will have full tummies to help them focus at school each day, thanks to an agreement putting the underused North Harbour Stadium kitchen to work.

Spotless and Auckland Unlimited, which owns the stadium in Albany, have come together to provide the free healthy lunches daily to 26 schools in Henderson, Massey, Ōrākei and Maungakiekie-Tāmaki.

The stadium’s full production-sized kitchen was a big investment but was “hardly” used during the week, Auckland Mayor Phil Goff said.

However, the arrangement would see the kitchen used every weekday, producing a stream of revenue for Auckland Council, eliminate some of the burden from ratepayers all while creating employment for 90 people in what Goff described as a win-win arrangement.

How to recycle broken glass

The Team from Auckland Council

Learn what to do when recycling broken glass. Large chunks are ok, as long as they are from grocery packaging. Always remember when recycling if in doubt, leave it out.
