Customer Service Ambassador



About the Company:


Eat My Lunch is a social enterprise on a mission to ensure that no kiwi kid goes hungry at school. In the last 5 years Eat My Lunch has Given over 1.6million lunches to Kiwi kids who would have otherwise gone hungry at school. Five years on, they have experienced massive growth and using a ‘Buy One. Give One’ model, they’ve made and delivered over 1.5 million lunches to customers and Given another 1.6 million lunches to kiwi kids in need. They currently provide ~2,000 lunches every school day to kids in Auckland and Wellington.


Eat My Lunch has won a tender for the Government’s Ka Ora, Ka Ako | Healthy School Lunches Programme, with the contract set to enable the business to provide lunches for approximately 16,500 Kiwi kids a day from next year; equating to 3.3 million lunches provided for children in 2021.


The announcement follows the last budget round, in which the Government committed to feeding 200,000 children a day in New Zealand in 2021 via a universal school lunch programme; an area of particular focus as many households experience heightened financial stress due to the impacts of COVID-19. The Eat My Lunch agreement will see the social enterprise providing lunches to schools across the Auckland and Wellington regions from Term 1 next year.
