One dream, one hope, one person – Fearless Kiwis

Making the big choice, going it alone

Panel Session Proudly Presented By NZME


In 2015, Lisa couldn’t fathom that in a country like New Zealand, thousands of kids go to school everyday without lunch. So with passion, belief and 15 years of marketing experience, Lisa and her husband started Eat My Lunch out of their home kitchen. Their mission: to ensure no child goes to school hungry.

One year later, they have made over 180,000 lunches, moved to a commercial kitchen, and had 1,000’s of volunteers through their doors. Hear how they manage their extreme growth, and how they make the volunteer model work for them.
