The company will arrange nutritious, precooked, frozen food packages to be delivered to the homes of nurses, health care assistants, orderlies, cleaners and ward clerks across the North Island to say thank you for their hard work as New Zealand comes into its third week of alert level four lockdown.

Fisher Funds is working in partnership with New Zealand-owned food company and essential service Jess’ Underground Kitchen (JUK) and Freightways. The first 1,000 hospital care staff to register will receive a care package of three ready-to-heat, nutritious frozen meals.

Chief investment officer Frank Jasper said, while supermarkets were offering special privileges to emergency services and medical staff, many shift workers are still finding it difficult to get there or secure an online delivery window.

“We wanted to do something to say thank you to those people who are doing a tremendous job – nurses and other hospital care staff are continuing to put themselves at risk by keeping hospitals running.

“We know it’s hard for nurses, health care assistants and ward clerks to juggle shift work with the lockdown restrictions and getting a nutritious meal so we’re making a small gesture to ease that pressure. By working with JUK, a small but formidable local business, we’re able to deliver food right to their door,” he said.
