FEAST FOR THE FUTURE 12 NOV

SAT 12 NOVEMBER Here's a reason to get out and about in the City of Sails, and support a very worthy cause. Children like those pictured above at East Tamaki Primary are loving gardening and cooking at school. But the programme needs to expand.

Feast for the Future will take place in Auckland on Saturday, November 12. More than 30 restaurants around the city will donate a portion of their takings from the evening to the very worthy Garden to Table programme.
