Pātaka Kai

As part of our community development Housing First are putting a pātaka kai pantry.

How does it work? 
So the idea is - you TAKE what you NEED and LEAVE what you CAN.  It’s open 24/7, no appointments required, no form filling, no criteria, there is no koha (donation) tin or money exchanged for anything.  It is literally go have a look, if you need something please help yourself.  If you can leave something, know that your community thanks you. Also no one mans or watches the pātaka every minute of every day, this really is an open pantry to our community.
