Cure Kids are New Zealand’s leading child health research charity.  Since forming more than 45 years ago, Cure Kids have funded nearly $40 million in child health research, which has enabled vast improvements in child health – extending, improving and saving the lives of thousands of kids, both in New Zealand and around the world. Cure Kids have funded, or are currently funding, research investigating better treatments and cures for inherited heart conditions, cystic fibrosis, childhood cancers, sudden unexpected death in infancy (SUDI), stillbirth, burns, and child and adolescent mental health, among many others.

From every meal you buy, Village Kitchen donates $0.50c. This gets split between cash for child health research, and wholesome nourishing meals from our freezer range. At the end of a long day at the hospital, dinner can be last on the list of priorities, so these meals really do make a difference. THANK YOU!

Rebecca, founder of Village Kitchen

Our three kids were a big part of my motivation for setting up Village Kitchen. It constantly struck me (it still does) how difficult I found cooking a nutritious delicious dinner every night while wrangling a baby, a toddler and a pre-schooler. I have always been a bit torn too, in that though it was tough, how very lucky I am to have three healthy children when there are so many others providing the same constant care and love, but with an unwell child in the mix.

Since our launch in 2015, we’ve been keeping a quiet eye out for our ideal charity match. Village Kitchen is now thrilled to partner with the incredible organisation that is Cure Kids, whose vital child health research aims to give every kid the healthy childhood they deserve. Not just our kids, every kid. The way it should be.

By sorting your weeknight dinners with Village Kitchen, you too are helping to support Cure Kids. From every meal you purchase, Village Kitchen donates $0.50c to Cure Kids. This gets split between child health research, and providing delicious, nourishing meals to families going through particularly tough times.

Free up your precious time, eat deliciously well, and support Cure Kids. Win, win, win!


While advances in medical science are all around us, there is still a lot to be done to improve health outcomes for today’s children and for future generations. Did you know that in New Zealand, every year: Cure Kids rely on the generosity of New Zealand public to help make this vital research possible and to give all children the best chance of a healthy childhood.

Consciously sourced ingredients (free range etc) for healthy, delicious meals. Rebecca and her team are gems … working hard all day in the kitchen so we don’t have to! Love our delicious meals, best $ I’ve spent, affording me precious time that I wouldn’t have had otherwise. Give VK a go, you won’t regret it!


Fabulous meals and service to boot…thanks for the experience…will be coming again.


I think you do a great job. I used to be a very loyal supporter of My Food Bag, but now I am working nearly full time, I struggle with all the prep that has to happen after school in between after school activities. I love that your meals arrive ready to pop into the oven and you are so consistent with your delivery times. I also love that your meals are nutritionally great – I see the extra veggies sneaked in there, but the kids either don’t notice or think it’s yummy anyway.


We enjoyed all last week’s dinners, it’s a fabulous help to me, not only dreaming up what to have, preparation, all the shopping, but also the guilt of firing out the old veggies etc. from the fridge!!!!


Ten gold stars for Wednesday and Thursday’s dinners last week. Melt in your mouth pork, tasty kumara and lots of greens!! Tasty lamb and mash and great greens!! Husband very pleased.


We also love your frozen meals – I normally try to ensure we have a couple in the freezer for those occasions when you just run out of time or can’t be bothered to cook


Village Kitchen has truly changed our lives, and in particular our evenings which are now stress-free and nutritious! As a busy family with parents both working full time and busy teenagers with school and sport it has made a huge difference to our lives, so thank you! The variety you serve is beyond what we could even imagine doing ourselves, and the fact you do paleo meals was the X factor that brought us to you.
