Government announces significant scheme to support kids in need

1 min read


(NewsTalkZB) The Government is today announcing a scheme that’ll not only see needy kids getting breakfast at school but will see some of them getting clothes, healthcare and hygiene products.

The food for vulnerable children will see the KickStart breakfast programme expanded with both Fonterra and Sanitarium partnering the Government to supply food to all schools that need it, five days a week.

The Government’s agreed to contribute half the cost of the expansion, costing taxpayers $9.5 million over the next five years.

Another $1.5 million will be spent on helping KidsCan to provide more clothes, health and hygiene to disadvantaged children.
