Petition of DJ Pomare: Allow food outlets to operate under COVID-19 Alert Level 3

Published date: 22 Apr 2020

Petition request

That the House of Representatives urge the Government to revise the rules around COVID-19 alert level 3 to allow food outlets that don’t offer delivery or drive-through options to operate.

Petition reason

I understand that in Naenae, Lower Hutt 15 food outlets have closed due to COVID-19. They do not provide drive-through or delivery options. US franchise McDonald's offers drive-through and delivery options. Open 24 hours, 7 days a week. Deliver Easy lists no Naenae food outlets. Uber Eats charges 30% for delivery. Naenae residents can find it difficult if not impossible to pay for food at these rates. Residents want to buy local. Naenae Whakāhi.
