0800 helpline set up for people struggling to get food, necessities

Nicola Brennan-Tupara Reporter from Piako Post

Waikato people struggling to get food and other necessities during lockdown now have a number to call.
Freephone 0800 800 405 was set up by the Waikato Civil Defence and Emergency Management Group for people struggling to get food, groceries, medication or other household goods and services.
The group is not yet sure how big the need is, and say the 0800 number doesn't replace other Government helplines.
