Pōkeno Community Care Pantry

A Wonderful celebration opening our Pōkeno Community Care Pantry - Community Food Sharing Pātaka x 3 this week.

Grateful thanks to Haupai Montgomery of Ngāti Tamaoho for his beautiful blessing ceremony for all 3 which we did beside the Mark Ball Drive Park Pantry.
We had many locals join us to celebrate that now we have our community Food Sharing Pantries open for you - Yay!

Including most of our Pantry crew: Francis F Cutillon; Janet Baillie; Jason Coetzee; myself, along with some of our wonderful Pokeno Community Committee - Our Place members - Helen Clotworthy, Allen Grainger & Ric Odom, friends , neighbours & keen participants including Lions of Pōkeno Rob & Jennie Herewini to represent their team support.

Thanks goes to the many for their input & help along the way.
