Who were the Pandemic Pack?


We're a group of Wellington hospitality owner-operators who came together to offer collaborative collective delivery during Levels 3 & 2 of the NZ COVID-19 alert system. We still believe in community overcoming adversity.

During Lockdown, unable to physically trade, we wrote a collaborative cookbook to help you get through self-isolation. The book is still available to purchase through Lashings, with all further profits being donated to a charity of our choosing.

Thank you for supporting The Pack over this period, please do visit us all in our individual shops, cafés and restaurants. Stay safe, stay healthy, kia kaha.
