Bellyful North Shore
Bellyful North Shore was established in 2015.
Note: We know a lot of Auckland whānau have been severely impacted by the flooding so please bear with us and be patient with our volunteers as we may need to prioritise those who need us most.
Please also be aware some of our branches are operating with reduced capacity due to the flooding and effects on volunteers.
As we are reliant on the goodwill of volunteers cooking our meals, our stock levels can fluctuate at times due to spikes in demand. While we do our best to meet needs of families, there can be delays, or we may need to refer you to an alternative support agency.
You can find a list of local support services here, which includes emergency food help.
For up-to-date information and support please visit Auckland Emergency Management.
Originally from Melbourne, I moved to New Zealand 10 years ago to be with my (now) husband. I have grown to love the North Shore and the wonderful community of neighbours and new friends we have built.
I am an independent director and business advisor with particular interest and experience in helping businesses do more with data and technology. I joined Bellyful North Shore in 2020 having taken a break from a run of busy and demanding jobs that had kept me away from home for too long and I wanted to give something back to the North Shore community.
My mother was a really important and impactful role model for me. She was a woman who always looked out for others and worked tirelessly to help wherever she could. When I came across Bellyful it resonated with some of my strongest memories of Mum so I was immediately attracted to join.
I took over the branch late in 2020 when the previous branch coordinator moved to Nelson. I am humbled to work with such a dedicated and wonderful group of volunteers who really keep the branch going and allow us to provide nutritious meals to so many North Shore families.
