Oranga Kai Healthy Eating-Healthy Action Programme

The Oranga Kai 6 week cooking workshops aim to assist whānau and their support agencies to learn about cooking and gardening on a budget.  Whānau have enjoyed being in a relaxed positive environment, where they get the opportunity to try new meal ideas and finish off each workshop with a sit down meal and where possible a take home pack.
