Feed Our Kids - MANA Candidate for Ikaroa-Rawhiti
MANA Candidate for
Ikaroa-Rawhiti Te Hamua Nikora
“Congrats must go to the MANA Movement
and to the MANA Leader Hone Harawira from today’s
announcement to extend the Kickstart breakfast programme”
says MANA Candidate for Ikaroa-Rawhiti Te Hamua
“Although today’s announcement doesn’t go
far enough, is a step in the right direction. Let’s not
forget that 70% of the country wants state-funded breakfasts
in schools, rather than relying on charity”.
that’s needed now is one more vote to get Hone’s Feed
the Kids Bill over the line so that every decile one and two
kid in the country gets free breakfast and lunch. For
Ikaroa-Rawhiti, that’s just under half of all Maori kids
who will benefit from MANA’s policy”.

Digital Evolution: Scoop Independent News Launches "Operation Chrysalis"
From today Scoop is beginning a process of public consultation with the political, business and civil society groups it has served for the past 15 and a half years.
"It is hoped that in time - with new leadership and increased community engagement - the chrysalis will incubate a new kind of Scoop, one which can sustainably continue Scoop's Mission 'to be an agent of positive change'", says Scoop Founder, Editor and Publisher Alastair Thompson.
