Wellington culinary celebrities will be joining the call for a “can-do government” and supporting “can-do people getting out to vote” as they help build the beehive out of cans on Tuesday.
New campaigning organisation ActionStation has launched their election campaign for a “can-do” government, and are surveying all parties on what they can do for New Zealand. As part of the campaign, local foodies will be building a replica beehive out of cans, which will then be donated to the Wellington City Mission.
“It’s about having a bit of fun with the idea that across the political spectrum, everyone wants a government with a can-do attitude” says ActionStation National Director Marianne Elliott.
The hour-long stunt will kick off at 11.30am on Tuesday by the statue of Richard Seddon on Parliament grounds.
Celebrity supporters who have taken ‘CAN do’ selfies for the cause include renowned chef and restaurant owner Martin Bosley, co-founder of Wellington’s City Market Rachel Taulelei, Enzo Bresolin of The Great Food Race and Asher Boote and Tsubasa Takahashi of The Ramen Shop. ActionStation is also being supported by Commonsense Organics who have donated 50 cans of food and are selling the rest at a discount.
In attendance tomorrow will be Nick Clark of Flight Coffee, Jonny McKenzie of Hawthorne Lounge, Clay Toomer from WBC and Capitol and Lucas Putnam from La Boca Loca.
