The Kai Ora Fund is a partnership between Mahitahi Hauora, Far North District Council, Te Puni Kōkiri, Northland Inc., Kaipara District Council, Northland District Health Board, and Whangārei District Council.
The purpose of the Kai Ora Fund is to enable Northlanders to grow and eat nutritious and sustainably grown local food. The Kai Ora Fund is a small community grants process to support innovative projects that address food security, benefit the wider community and encourage employment and economic development in the region. We want our communities to have an accessible, affordable and safe food supply for current and future generations, and to be resilient to future disruption or unavailability of food due to various risk factors including droughts, fuel shortages and economic instability.
Dates for the 2022 funding round are yet to be confirmed.
