Common Unity Project Aotearoa

Common Unity Project Aotearoa is working to create food-secure and resilient communities in the Wellington region. Central to its mahi is a Community Food Hub model.

The model includes five core pillars: an inclusive community café where transactions can be made with time or money; urban kai farm programme encompassing 11 local farm sites; local food cooperative; community kitchen for food production, learning and connection; and a learning hub.

As a result of its work, up to 2,500 meals are produced each week using food grown by Urban Kai farms; 10 tonnes of produce has been grown in the Hutt Valley since 2018, and 18,000 meals have been gifted since April 2020 as a result of the pandemic.
