Give the gift of a meal this Christmas

Give the gift of a meal this Christmas

Now here’s a feel-good story for you: Jess’ Underground Kitchen have teamed up with The Salvation Army to support those less fortunate this Christmas. The last two years of Covid reality have been tough, especially on our already struggling communities, and Christmas often amplifies the daily stresses of those living in hardship. Jess and her team at JUK have created an exclusive Christmas dinner for New Zealanders to not only enjoy a nutritious ready-to-eat meal, but to pay it forward with their ‘Give The Gift of a Meal’ initiative – to encourage Kiwi’s to feed those special people in their lives and to help support The Salvation Army and their frontline workers this festive season.

Whether people are celebrating Christmas in isolation or surrounded with family and friends, it’s never been easier to enjoy a hot, delicious and nutritious Christmas meal. With all proceeds going to The Salvation Army, skip the socks and give the gift of a home-cooked meal to a loved one this Christmas – it’s hard not to drool over the idea of JUK’s Succulent Roast Chicken With Bacon & Cranberry Stuffing, Duck Fat Potatoes, Minted Peas and Homemade Gravy – free range and generously portioned at 400g per serve. Jess’ Underground Kitchen is the market-leader in premium ready-made meals, made right here in New Zealand by real chefs with locally-sourced ingredients, and you can be sure that this traditional roast meal with a twist will tick all of the festive (and flavour) boxes. JUK ready-to-eat meals are reheatable from frozen in minutes, and take the hard work out of cooking. With the added bonus of no dishes!

Or better yet, treat yourself in the lead-up to Christmas and enjoy a JUK meal or two. You’ll not only be well-fed, you’ll be helping The Salvation Army in the wonderful work they do daily to support Kiwi’s in need.

The Salvation Army provides Christmas food parcels, packed with fresh, nutritious ingredients and a few treats to families in need, allowing them to put together a delicious Christmas meal to share. Food is often the gateway to accessing further support services at The Salvation Army and can spark the beginnings of long-term transformational change.

Every family deserves to have a joyful Christmas – no-one should have to worry about being able to feed their family, especially on Christmas Day. JUK’s support to The Salvation Army will bring hope to many New Zealand families and make Christmas day that little bit brighter.

This limited Christmas meal will be available exclusively in the freezer of all good New World, Pak n Save and Four Square stores from mid November 2021. With proceeds from the sale of this meal going directly to The Salvation Army, Jess’ Underground Kitchen will also be providing Christmas meals to the charity’s frontline workers this festive season, to support them as they head into this busy and stressful time of year. Everyone deserves a hot, delicious and nutritious meal this Christmas. So stock up your freezer (and your loved ones’ freezers) and give back this Christmas – thanks to Jess’ Underground Kitchen and The Salvation Army.
