Access to healthy and affordable food is fundamental to any community.

The Kitchen Project is intended to be a public-private partnership, initially set up by Panuku Development Auckland and Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) with support from Healthy Families Manukau, Manurewa-Papakura and Healthy Families Waitakere.

The Kitchen Project is seeking financial and in-kind support from organisations and individuals who care about changing the foodscape and creating pathways to employment and entrepreneurial opportunities to improve the prosperity, health and wellbeing of themselves and their local communities – all through a simple passion for food.

The first The Kitchen Project pilot launched in West Auckland, March 2018. Successful applicants have demonstrated they are committed to their local community, sustainable business practices and are on their way to employment opportunities through this initiative.

Financial and in-kind support will enable us to expand The Kitchen Project geographically and in scope, ensuring it’s sustainability for local food entrepreneurs and their community for years to come.

We hope you will join us as a founding partner.
