Volly Call - Meal Delivery

Wendy Richards from Volunteering New Plymouth

Bellyful has been running for 12 years, with each individual branch running and funding itself. In that time, it has made more than 166,000 meals and fed 30,000 families.

Bellyful has been running for 12 years, with each individual branch running and funding itself. In that time, it has made more than 166,000 meals and fed 30,000 families.

Here in New Plymouth the branch was launched in the first week of October this year and the local branch coordinator has organised the first couple of “cookathons” and had a great response with a good number of volunteers helping to make the four meal selections which are Beef Lasagne, Beef Bolognese Sauce, Macaroni Cheese and Tomato and Red Lentil Soup. These four meals are all made from the same recipe throughout all branches which are basic but child-friendly and nutritious.

Who are these meals for you ask??

Having a new baby, or young children, can be really, really hard work! And having a good support network is one of the main ingredients for getting through those early stages.

Bellyful’s main criteria are simply that the whānau they support have babies or young children, and don’t have others available to do what we do – cook and deliver free meals.

There is no financial assessment involved. However, it’s important to note that Bellyful is not a service that provides meals based on financial need, our service is based on more of an emotional need for support.

The key to the service is that Bellyful New Plymouth is here to provide some practical support in the form of frozen meals – for those whānau who wouldn’t have that support otherwise.

They don’t want to take over from all of the other wonderful forms of support available to whānau (like support from family, friends, church, Playcentre, other family groups, and networks) – They step in where none of those exist.

Having a few meals delivered by a friendly face can be a real sanity-saver.

Now what is needed are some more volunteers who understand what Bellyful is about and are happy to work with the local branch coordinator and become one of the volunteers who is rostered to contact the recipient family and arrange safe delivery of the frozen meals. What else do you need to know??

This will be on an as needed basis.

Are you a kind and compassionate person?
Are you comfortable working alone to deliver meals to families?
Health & Safety and Delivery training is given.
All delivery volunteers are Police Vetted
All delivery volunteers are Reference checked.
You need to hold an appropriate driver license
You will also need to have reliable transport

Bellyful is now supporting whānau in 25 communities across New Zealand thanks to their wonderful sponsors, supporters, and volunteers the service is free.

So, if you want to add your support behind this essential service or want to find out more then please contact Wendy at Volunteering New Plymouth email her at admin@volunteeringnewplymouth.nz or phone or text 022 571 4228 and let her know you are keen to be involved.

Kiwis are now able to download their Covid vaccination certificate, called 'My Vaccine Pass'.

Anyone who is fully vaccinated can request a pass by visiting mycovidrecord.nz or by calling 0800 222 478. The vaccine pass can be downloaded as an image on your phone, added to Apple Wallet or Google Pay, or printed out as a hard copy.

Covid-19 Minister Chris Hipkins has asked people to be patient and request their passes over the next few days, as the website has already seen an overwhelming demand since it was launched this morning.

Passes will not be required to access essential businesses such as schools, supermarkets, or pharmacies, but more details on how they will be implemented are expected to be outlined in the press conference at 1pm today.

What you need to know:

• You can request a vaccine pass at mycovidrecord.nz or by calling 0800 222 478.
• If you don't receive an email with your pass within 24 hours, email the My Covid Record team on help@mycovidrecord.min.health.nz or call 0800 222 478. Check your spam folder first.
• The pass will be required later this year to enter some businesses and venues.
• There are separate passes you can request for domestic use and international travel.

...to nominate a spot in your community needing a splash of colour!

This is the LAST WEEK to make your Resene Colour Your Community nomination so make sure you take a few minutes to share a few words about an organisation, business or community project that needs a bit of a refresh. It could be for a park bench that's seen better days, a building that's wilting, a children's playground that lost its shine or a wall that's a bit of a bore.

Apply now for up to $1000 worth of Resene paints, wood stains and products to spruce up an area in your 'hood.

There'll be five winners announced later this month - plus you'll be invited to vote for the People's Choice Award.

Hi Neighbours,
As we approach summer we are reminded of the change we are seeing in our New Zealand seasons.

We can all recall the images of the impacts of extreme recent rains in urban Auckland and rural Canterbury. As summer temperatures warm and the season gets longer and longer, the cooling degree day analysis and heatwave days can help you to prepare for such events.

Climate Insights has added two new variables to its Residential Property Climate Risk Report: tropical cyclone and tsunami risk. Information is knowledge. A Climate Insights property report on your residential property also includes tips on what can be done to improve the resilience of your property and householders to emerging weather and climate risks. It only takes minutes to generate a report for any address.
