Eat My Lunch launches crowdfunding campaign

Startup Eat My Lunch today launched a project crowdfunding campaign on PledgeMe to support the work it is doing to alleviate child poverty in New Zealand.


Eat My Lunch operates a ‘buy one give one’ model for lunches, which has allowed them to provide more than 14,000 lunches over the past 10 weeks to children in South Auckland.


PledgeMe CEO Anna Guenther said it was great to see Eat My Lunch reaching out to its crowd so they can keep up with demand.


“Eat My Lunch’s massive growth has shown they have an awesome crowd of people behind them supporting the important work they are doing,” Ms Guenther said.


“PledgeMe is proud to host a campaign that is looking to use its crowd to bring about positive change for Kiwi kids.


“Eat My Lunch have really come to the party with the rewards they’re offering people who pledge and they’ve got some big names backing them. We’re looking forward to a hugely successful campaign which will mean more and more Kiwi kids have full stomachs when they go to school.”
