Bellyful aims to help families when they need it most – at dinner time – by providing meals to those with newborn babies and families struggling with illness. Bellyful believes we don’t need to go through stressful times alone – and having a new baby or a sick family member can make life tough! Having someone pop around with a couple of cooked meals can go a long way toward easing the stress.
Acorn Foundation funding is important to Bellyful Tauranga as it assists towards operating costs to ensure more families can receive Bellyful meals. Without the support from the Acorn Foundation, Bellyful would not be able to continue to provide our services free of charge to our families.
This year, Acorn funding will go towards a year's supply of meal packaging and delivery bags, which means approximately 650 Tauranga families will benefit from Bellyful's meal deliveries.
In 2019 Bellyful received funding from the M Sutherland Fund.
