    Soup kitchens/food services in auckland?

    I used to volunteer at the Te Aro soup kitchen in Wellington and i'd like to continue helping in Auckland.
    Anyone know of similar establishments here you believe need more help than they currently have? I haven't done much research yet.

    I cant help with that one Angus, but bloody good on you for putting your hand up.
    I read of one such establishment that has taken things to another level, by introducing a menu (limited choice obviously) and waiting staff. This goes a long way to reducing stigmatism, and increasing self respect

    That sounds really cool, job hunt isn't going great (plenty of interviews but never any calls back) so this'll at least keep my skills sharp.

    Great attitude Angus. One day you're going to reap the rewards of your actions, and I hope sooner than later. By putting yourself out there doing this great work, someone will see/notice you, and offer you one hell of an opportunity.

    Ironic really, the ones with the least, give the most, and the ones who can afford to give, just take

    I go down to waikato to see my grandparents occasionally so we could definitely arrange something in the future.
    But yeah the kids loved it, learned how to cook with the wildlife and native plants and properly cook over fires.

    @Angus_A give these guys a call, they do an awesome job! If they don't have a vacancy they will probably be able to point you to someone who does.

    Homeless people love getting free food.

    It leaves them more from their benefits to spend on alcohol, tobacco and drugs.

    I remember talking to a guy about his helping feeding the homeless in Wellington. He was saying it gave him something to do while he was looking for a job.

    I pointed out that the homeless people were all on the same welfare benefits as he was, had less expenses like rent, and of because of do-gooders like him enabling them, the people he was trying to help were better off financially than he was.

    Beneficiaries should be made to undergo regular drug tests to receive a government benefit.
