The Kai Ora Fund is a partnership between Mahitahi Hauora, The Far North District Council, Te Puni Kōkiri, Kaipara District Council, Northland District Health Board, The Ministry of Social Development, Whangārei District Council and Healthy Families Far North.

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.


He whenua taurikura, he whānau houkura
Abundant whenua, prosperous whānau
