Kai Avondale is a group which connects the community with food initiatives in Avondale. The group, run by Anne Riley, uses Facebook to update locals on the various free food outlets in the area.
One of the most regular and generous contributors to Kai Avondale are the New Lynn Lions. Over the past couple of months, the Lions have twice donated several hundred dollars’ worth of groceries to support the work that Kai Avondale does in feeding people with low food security.
