While Kiwis around most of the country can now order and enjoy their favourite meals, many families are still struggling with food insecurity.
Throughout the COVID-19 outbreak, the New Zealand Government urged everyone to look after one another and Domino’s wanted to continue to do its bit. That’s why the pizza chain is working with The Salvation Army to offer a Slice of Kindness to 2,000 Kiwi families in need, by giving them the gift of a hot meal, safely delivered.
Domino’s has chosen to once again partner with The Salvation Army due to their expertise in helping the most vulnerable and their extensive foodbank network across the country.
Domino’s will be supplying The Salvation Army with printed vouchers that they will be able to distribute over the next few weeks. With this new initiative Domino’s will have supported The Salvation Army with nearly $120,000 worth of donations over the past 12 months.
Domino’s is passionate about giving back to the local communities in which they operate and is always looking for a way to put a smile on people’s faces – especially during these challenging and uncertain times. This new initiative is part of an ongoing program launched last year called ‘Feed the Knead’.
Feed the Knead is designed to provide localised support by giving those doing it tough one less thing to worry about – a safe, hot meal – and allows individuals to nominate a person or organisation in need through the Domino’s website.
“Feed the Knead has already fed thousands of Kiwis across the country and we look forward to feeding thousands more,” said Domino’s New Zealand General Manager Cameron Toomey.
We appreciate that serving the community right now is a privilege and it’s one we accept with a great deal of trust and respect. We continue to look for ways to deliver hot meals to people in the community who need them the most.”
