Finally, things are easing up and we can now get food made by someone else. But if you’re not keen on the queues at the big ones, and you’re pumped up to support ‘local’ the choices can be a little overwhelming – who’s doing what, and how?

Enter HB at Home, the brainchild of Bistronomy’s James Beck and Alice McKinley from Kin Marketing. This regional online collaboration makes it super easy for locals to find their favourite food options.

The website features over 80 of our beloved restaurants, cafes, bars, brewers and wineries all offering food and drink via contactless delivery or pick-up. Users can peruse the full selection or search and filter by location. Traditional takeaways, heat-and-eat meals, plus at-home options from restaurants who have pivoted to offer new ‘level3’ menus.

Orders can be made through the website, or direct over the phone.

Alice McKinley, Kin Marketing Director has led the charge to get the website and campaign up and running within the week. She says “it’s been pretty hectic but I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved.”

“It’s really rewarding to see how excited people are about Hawke’s Bay at Home, and that makes it all worthwhile.”

The project has been sponsored and supported in kind by Kin Marketing, Sartoria Design, The People’s Insurance & Finance, Nic Goodman and Darryl Buckley from Sotheby’s International, Vicky Roebuck Communications and PR, The MacTaggart family of Havelock North and Hawke’s Bay Tourism.
