Love local food? Get involved in Wellington Local Food Week!
The week typically features a range of events around the city including community food gatherings, tastings and crop swaps.
Local Food Week is organised alongside Neighbours Day Aotearoa – a national campaign which encourages everyone around New Zealand to do something to connect with their neighbours. And what better way to connect than around local food!
Seasonal food not only tastes better and is healthier – but involvement in local food is good for the environment and builds local economies and community resilience.
Neighbourhood growing, processing, buying, selling, storage and sharing of food - and reducing waste - brings people together and strengthens community networks. These activities also create new business opportunities.
The week is about celebrating, learning, and inspiring people to enjoy local food and get better connected with their food system.
