Bellyful Franklin is our founding branch, established in 2009.
I joined Bellyful Franklin in 2014 as a way to meet people in the community. It has led me on a journey that I didn’t expect.
The idea of providing free meals to help new mums and families who are struggling really resonated. Having a baby is hard. Even if you have great support structures there are always days when everything turns to custard. The last thing you can think of is “what’s for dinner?” The comfort of having a meal in the freezer, prepared by someone locally is really powerful. It’s such a simple thing, but this simple act of kindness is what I love about Bellyful.
Every Bellyful branch operates locally in their community. We fundraise and support families’ right here. Our team is drawn from our community. Money raised in Franklin is used to support Franklin families. I’m really proud of that. I love being a part of the Franklin team, they are an amazing group of volunteers who give and give and give.
If you or someone you know could do with some Bellyful meals, then we encourage you to share some Bellyful love – head to www.bellyful.org.nz and complete a referral form ♥
