In neighbourhoods across New Zealand, kids are looking forward to a Christmas that may not happen. Forced to choose between food or bills, hard-working parents like Melody worry whether they’ll be able to provide even the simplest Christmas meal for their children.
“I’ll only eat dinner 2-3 times a week so that the children have enough food. This is very stressful… a lot of crying and minimal sleep.”
Food insecurity is the everyday reality for 98.8% of the families Variety helps.
Please donate today to provide grocery support for families like Melody’s this Christmas.
