Top chefs including Nadia Lim and Allyson Gofton and Peter Gordan are participating in a Kidscan campaign to demonstrate food poverty in New Zealand. Nadia Lim has created the new recipe coined red soup, which is made from the reheated, leftover water that cheerios were cooked in. The recipe is based on a real New Zealand family’s experience of poverty. Allyson Gofton cooks a meal of rice and tomato sauce whilst Peter Gordon creates a mix of boiled water and mince. Kidscan Chief Executive Julie Chapman reports that New Zealand families are struggling to make ends meet due to high rent prices and back-to-school expenses and that the charity is currently helping to feed 34,000 children across the country. New data has revealed that one in eight children in the country live in material hardship.
