New Zealand Foodbanks 



If you are in need of a food parcel please get in touch with Work and Income first on 0800 559 009 They have a range of assistance options available. You can find more information on their website at


If you are declined for food assistance from WINZ contact your local foodbank for a food parcel. Please call them directly. DO NOT JUST TURN UP. Please be patient as they are under a lot of pressure meeting demand.

Contact details can be found here Find a Foodbank

Remember to wear a mask and maintain social distancing. We've been here before and by working together we've got this New Zealand.


The foodbanks are facing an increased demand for food parcels and are struggling to meet this need. If you would like to support your local foodbank and help a family in need you can make a financial donation using their bank details listed on our Donate page.
