Eat My Lunch is a social enterprise started by Lisa King and Michael Meredith in 2015 to make it easy for Kiwis to help other Kiwis. One in four children in New Zealand lives in poverty and thousands go without lunch every day, and the Eat My Lunch team provides lunches for those children. It works like this: you Buy one lunch for yourself, and another one will be given to a child who would otherwise go hungry. Buy One. Give One. In just two years, they have given more than 450,000 lunches for Kiwi kids in need at 46 low-decile schools in Auckland, Hamilton and Wellington, with the help of more than 3000 volunteers. In 2017 they launched Eat My Dinner with a range of tasty family-friendly dinners that are delivered to homes, and for every dinner bought, they give a lunch to a child who needs one. .
