During the COVID-19 lockdown the team at Pou Whakaaro came together and started cooking and freezing meals for people who require extra support in the community. The team also reached out to others in the community by extending our support and delivering meals to those who are vulnerable and live alone. 

The frozen meals were really well received with people saying it was a nice treat to have a night or two off cooking. It is also a great way to keep a check on those people living alone in the community to ensure they are safe, happy and looked after.

Our  meals are delivered once a week by our very own ‘meal angel’ who travels out into the community and delivers the meals into people's mailboxes or doorstep. “It is lovely to see the appreciation on peoples faces, many of them will stand at the door and wave. For some, the meal deliveries are the only contact they have had for weeks, it is a privilege to be part of such a caring community.”
