Do Some Good's School Lunch Project ensure tamariki in all Wellington communities have access to food during their school day.
Kiwi kids living in hardship deserve more support, opportunities and experiences from the wider community. With many businesses seeking to promote corporate social responsibility, we aim to direct their focus, and their customised offer of support, to kids that need it the most.
We aim to sponsor 20 schools by 2023. We’re looking to partner with businesses to help provide school lunches, and put together corporate volunteer days and annual Christmas parties.
The School Lunch Project at Arakura School has been a great success and has had a huge impact on our students. Our school has also benefited greatly from the ‘Do Some Good’ days last year.

Porirua School is extremely lucky to have the School Lunch Project. Our students come to school knowing that they can make a lunch if they do not have lunch. We have seen an increase in students coming to school. Before they would have stayed at home because they didn’t have lunch to bring to school. We have students who are now ready to learn with full tummies, while also learning great life skills of independently making their lunch or volunteer to help others. Thank you VSCT for supporting our school community.
