Creative hub The Incubator in Tauranga's Historic Village recently received a flashy new addition to its décor.
The Incubator was one of three lucky recipients of a Dick Frizzell artworked fridge.
An initiative between Cooking 4 Change and Haier, ‘Freezzell 4 your Community' aims to create awareness of some of our country's most deserving charities and community groups and provide them with a much needed resource in the form of a limited edition, Dick Frizzell exclusively artworked, Haier multi-door HMD440X fridge, for either use in their organisation or as a fundraising tool.
Cooking 4 Change co-founder and TV personality Erin Simpson dropped the fridge off and says The Incubator stood out amongst other entries.
“Every entry was awesome but The Incubator probably the one that stood out to me. It wasn't for food, it was just different. These guys are just heavily involved in the Arts which is one of my passions, because I know how cool art is for the community. It really stood out for me.”
Cooking 4 change is an initiative that works on creative projects to raise funds and build awareness of a growing global problem of people getting access to good food.
Their most recent endeavor – the Cooking 4 Change recipe book – involved celebrities sharing their favourite recipes and the money went towards charities.
“We had 101 celebrities in the first book and everyone was really supportive; we'd go to their house and film and they'd cook and we'd yarn away,” says Erin.
“The money goes to Blood and Leukemia, Starship Foundation, City Mission and Paw Justice.”
