The Feed the Need project will be able to grow vegetables all year round to help struggling people in the community. The project will also help teach people how to grow their own supply of healthy food as well as learning new recipes, storing food and preserving.

Operating out of a Matapuna section, Annie Windell has been supplying food for people for a few years from her 150 square metre garden, now she has been given a kickstart from Supercharged Energy who will fund a greenhouse, supply materials and other resources.

Director Richard Homewood said the greenhouse will be an important step to supply food all year round.
