Common Unity is a place-based charity which aims to regenerate communities. Common Unity is based in Epuni, a neighbourhood where many households experience high levels of deprivation. Common Unity’s Food Hub aims to strengthen local food resilience and access and grow community connection. The Hub includes urban kai farms, a community kitchen, café and co-op, a CSA veggie box and a food pantry/sharing shelf. The Food Hub also extends to key collaborations with Kōkiri Marae, Te Awa Kairangi Kai Collective and a local school.

This report shares findings from an in-house evaluation of the Food Hub conducted between September 2021 and April 2022. The evaluation purpose is to assess how well the Food Hub is achieving positive change and learning.
