Whangaroa Health Services (WHST) have released a new report which provides insight into the challenges and strengths of those living in Whangaroa.
The Building a Food Secure and Resilient Whangaroa Report is a starting point to explore a unique opportunity to transform an unused building, the Koru Centre, into a Food Hub and dedicated space to support food security and resiliency across Whangaroa.
Led by Healthy Families Far North, WHST set out to understand people’s experiences of the food system in Whangaroa. The report will help WHST to reframe how a food hub might operate, what role it can play to further support food security, to think differently about the ways we can support our food system in Whangaroa and how we might draw on the innate strengths and wisdom of the community.
Thank you to those organisations and people that have been part of this learning journey, including Te Rūnanga o Whaingaroa, Mahitahi Hauora and the wider community.
Together with WHST, we welcome the opportunity to share our learnings, insights and collective vision to building a food secure and resilient Whangaroa.
