NZ Premium Foods is Supporting Kiwis in Need Over Lockdown

NZ Premium Foods‘ income completely dried up when the country went into a snap lockdown on 17 August but that is not stopping them from helping Kiwis in their local area who are in dire straits.

The company didn’t just continue with financial donations to Tuakau and Mangere Budgeting Service. Owner Rachael Speedy personally prepared and delivered food to the charity, who passed it on to desperate families in her local area.

When the charity’s CEO Darryl Evans contacted Speedy explaining that demand for food parcels was growing by the day, Speedy jumped into action. In addition to her personal effort, she immediately reached out to other food companies to ask if they would join her in helping Kiwis in need.

“We might not have any business right now, but there are so many people worse off than us. Some right here in my local area cannot afford food or rent right now.” Speedy explained. “Some are in dire need. Our chips might be down, but there are always ways we can help people that need it. Even little things, like making a few meals, donating money or food, can make a huge difference to a struggling family.”
