Recent media reports have highlighted the growing concerns in South Auckland about the high number of people struggling with obesity and the lack of access to healthy food options. But an exciting new initiative, supported by Healthy Families South Auckland, is aiming to tackle this very problem. The Papatoetoe Food Hub is located in the heart of Old Papatoetoe next to the Auckland Teaching Gardens on an under-utilised piece of council land and has the aim of making it easier for people to get good kai, at a time when the community is saturated with unhealthy food options.
The Papatoetoe Food Hub is working alongside one of the early Generator applicants who are co-sharing their commercial premises to create deliciously cooked hangi.
