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. Every meal you buy allows Village Kitchen to put aside a portion of a frozen meal towards our Cure Kids support meal programme. Throughout the year, we then send these wholesome nourishing meals to families identified by Cure Kids family ambassador Tiff, who are in need of nourishment & practical support. 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!

WHY DOES VILLAGE KITCHEN SUPPORT CURE KIDS? 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 great organisation to lend support to. Since July 2017, Village Kitchen is thrilled to have been partnered with 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. 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.

We’ve been receiving Village Kitchen meals for several weeks and are enthusiastic fans of an excellent service. It’s a pleasure to enjoy such a varied, tasty and healthy range of meals efficiently delivered on time every afternoon. I’ve enjoyed the challenge of matching a different wine to each.

Before my wife went into care over a year ago now, Village Kitchen had established itself as a lifeline for evening meals in a household where the care pressures were considerable. Since then, Village Kitchen has remained my evening meal provider and the impressive variety and quality of its ready to heat and eat meals has been maintained, indeed is even better. I have no hesitation in commending Village Kitchen to all who have busy and demanding lives and appreciate appealing and nutritious meals.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to the Village Kitchen team for the meals that have been delivered over the last couple of weeks to my parents in Auckland. I live overseas and recently Mum had a knee replacement. I wanted to give her a break from worrying about preparing meals so found your service online. The feedback from Mum has been exceptional. She’s a fussy eater and both her and Dad have loved the dinners. Amazing variety; beautiful high-quality meat; great presentation; perfect portion size and always delivered on time. It’s rare to find a company nailing it like you are and I’m so grateful for it.


I can’t believe what a difference the dinners have made so far and are also really delicious. Once again, many thanks!


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


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!


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!!!!


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.


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.
