BBM Kai has life changing potential
Dave Buttabean Letele wants to help people eat healthy food on a budget.
The boxer turned fitness coach has been running a community foodbank since the start of the year, and that's prompted him to develop a nutrition program with help from a TSB Good Stuff Grant.
He says BBM Kai is already showing positive results, and he'd like to get government funding to extend it.
"This guy has been with us for 9 months, was on drugs. He's improved his relationship, no more dramas, no more diabetes. He was diabetic for years. Nine months with us, he is no longer type a 2 diabetic and he's living life to the full. What we teach should be part of the health system and also in the schools," Mr Letele says.
