As a nation we are now at Level 4 response to Covid19. We are now firmly in unchartered and uncertain times. However, Foodbox falls into the category of an “essential service” and we will continue to send our food boxes to all those in need.
We will do everything we can to feed as many people as we can during this time and are currently moving additional staff from our restaurant supply business to ensure we can operate at full capacity.
We are able to take new orders, so if you or someone you know could use our service please do not hesitate to contact us.

We are a NZ owned company, here to help. All of our food boxes can be ordered from foodbox.nz



What is Foodbox?

· A box packed full of restaurant-quality food delivered to your door.

· Everything you need to feed your family for a week.

· No fuss, no stress, no supermarkets.

· Minimal packaging.

· Delivery within 48 hrs from NZ farmers and suppliers to your door.

· Contactless delivery -all drivers wear masks and gloves.



Customise your Foodbox or select 'JUST FEED ME'

JUST FEED ME Foodbox is a hand-selected week's worth of food. It includes high-quality NZ meat, fruit, veg, rice, pasta, tomatoes, bread, eggs, milk. It can be ordered for 2, 4 or 6 people. You don't have to make any decisions, we take care of the week's food shopping.

If you want something different, go through to the main site and customise your box. All of our Foodboxes can be customised to suit your household's tastes and dietary requirements.



Many thanks, stay safe and be kind to one another.

We’re now at Alert Level 4. Stay home. Save lives.

New Zealand Government

Dear concerned citizen,

We must now all stay home. Because that’s how we’ll stop the virus.

Dear concerned citizen,

We must now all stay home. Because that’s how we’ll stop the virus.

Level 4 measures will likely be in place for a number of weeks.

Don’t worry. During that time you will still be able to access all the essentials you need, including medicine, food, and other home supplies.

ALL THE TIME, NO EXCEPTIONS
It’s incredibly important that we all follow the Level 4 plan, all the time. No exceptions. Because doing so will save lives.

A CHALLENGE FOR EVERYONE
We realise these are big changes. But these are challenging times.
If we don't all stay home, the whole country will need Level 4 restrictions for longer.

SUPPORT OUR EMERGENCY SERVICE PEOPLE
We owe it to the essential services. Our nurses, doctors and everyone else on the frontline. They’re working tirelessly to save lives. We should all do everything in our power to help them do this.
Thank you to each and every person, for doing their bit.

While you’re staying at home:

STAY CONNECTED
• Don’t let physical distance stop you staying connected. Keep in touch with people using video calls, phone calls, chat and texting.
• If you know people who are living alone, vulnerable, or separated from their loved ones, regularly check-in with them.

STAY WELL
• Continue to practice good hygiene – wash your hands with soap. Then dry.
• Cough or sneeze into your elbow.
• Regularly clean surfaces in your home with disinfectant.
• Keep up regular physical exercise, and get some fresh air when possible. It’s good so long as this is solitary, or only with those you live with.

REACH OUT
If you need advice, support or help, try reaching out to friends, family, whānau or workmates.

WE'RE UPDATING INFORMATION CONSTANTLY
For all the latest advice, including answers to your health and financial questions, go to Covid19.govt.nz.

And remember: what you do now, will help protect all of us.

Hello again, Hamilton. There is an effort via UoA to coordinate needed supplies to healthcare facilities. If you have contacts who work in healthcare/care/assistance or work in manufacturing, you can help by linking them up! Here's the message from Annabelle:

I am working with the University of Auckland to try and co ordinate channels between manufacturers and suppliers willing to help to hospitals and other healthcare sectors for PPE and other equipment. This can be everything from material masks to printed / CNC milled valves etc. for hospital equipment and I need help getting the word out and connecting as many people as possible.

I need:

* Hospital and Healthcare workers: (including nurses, doctors, meals on wheels, rest homes, shelters etc.) to contact me with what demand they have, what supplies they need, the quantities and time frames and to what specifications. Please fill in this form:

docs.google.com...

* NZ based Manufacturers: to contact me with what ability they have to fulfil demands (i.e. CNC milling, 3D printing, laser cutting, ability to sew large amounts of material etc. etc.), quantities and time frames. Please fill in this form:
docs.google.com...


If you are one of the two groups please fill in the forms. If you know anyone in those two groups, please help by sharing this with them and ask them to fill in the forms. The more people who register demand, the more validation we can give to organisations or where demand is centred and what it is and the quicker we can get this ball rolling!

If you have other comments or suggestions I can be contacted at acol208@aucklanduni.ac.nz

Please don't hesitate to contact me!


Best wishes!
