Over the COVID-19 lockdown, thousands of volunteers delivered thousands of grocery items to people who were unable to leave the house. We're thrilled to announce that our team has been recognised in the 2020 Minister of Health Volunteer Awards, winning the Youth Health Volunteer Team Award, for our COVID-19 Response!

Congratulations to the 3,000+ volunteers who put themselves forward to help in a time of crisis – and the core team of 102 people who coordinated an entire Grocery Delivery service, nationally. This award recognises all of YOUR efforts in supporting your community!

Thank you also to all of our friends & partners who supported us to make the COVID-19 Response possible and a special thanks to our major supporters! UC Student Volunteer Army, University of Canterbury, Citycare Group, New World, Hyundai NZ, Z Energy, Facebook, Go Media & our advisors & cheerleaders.

Thank you, Ministry of Health – Manatū Hauora & Chris Hipkins MP for recognising our exceptional team of volunteers. Ngā mihi nui.
