Kia ora and welcome to
He Kai Kei Aku Ringa!
The whakataukī, ‘he kai kei aku ringa’ literally translates to mean, ‘there is food in my hands.’
Over the last year, however, we have learned from our discussions with whānau that ‘he kai kei aku ringa’ reflects a broad understanding of kai (food) and Māori kai systems.
He Kai Kei Aku Ringa is a project which explores these understandings and really looks at the kai stories of our whānau.
It places whānau as the experts within the context of their lived intergenerational experience.
He Kai Kei Aku Ringa hopes to affirm and encourage you and your whānau to continue your journeys towards creating better relationships with kai, and all that that entails.
It is a kaupapa for you in the hopes that you will feel uplifted, inspired and encouraged to continue on your journey with kai.
