Invercargill's Ngarimu Pene (7) and her mother Geraldine Pene demonstrate ways to use edible weeds at The Pantry's World Kindness Day community event in Invercargill yesterday.

The how-to session was just one of the events hosted at the South City store for World Kindness Day 2019.

The Pantry volunteer Kimberley Stephenson said the purpose of the festivities was to celebrate and acknowledge the role kindness played in the Invercargill community.

''We have a note wall where people can share their words of kindness and they get half-price coffees.''

Attending sessions from yoga and meditation to free massages and soup-making classes, community members flowed in and out throughout the day, many contributing donations to the Southland food bank, she said.
