The eighth issue of monthly Wellington-based street magazine Regenerate is out now, providing work opportunities for those affected by homelessness or poverty.
This issue is focused on food, and Regenerate has received the green light from Hutt City Council to start selling in the Valley.
The new Food issue has features on Visa Wellington On A Plate, and on restaurateurs Steve Logan of Logan Brown (on what makes a good restaurant) and Dan Haycock of Burger Liquor (on what makes a good burger).
There’s also the story of how 911,668 lunches were given to hungry kids, along with the regular profiles of sellers, the health column, and more.
Four free copies of Regenerate are provided to a group of homeless people. They sell these to the public for $5.00, and can use the proceeds to buy further copies for $2.50.
People are able to make $80:00 before their benefit is impacted.
Street sellers are operating today in Cuba Street and will be at the Newtown Market this Saturday, and at the Chaffers Harbourside Market on Sunday.
Look out for the sellers there, and on the streets of Wellington and the Hutt Valley, and have your $5:00 ready.
