New Zealand Foodbank Directory 

COVID-19 UPDATE

HOW TO APPLY FOR FOOD ASSISTANCE:

If you are in need of a food parcel please visit our Directory to contact a foodbank in your area.

 

Call them directly to make an application for emergency food assistance. We cannot stress this enough. DO NOT just turn up at the foodbank. This puts everyone at RISK!

 

We understand that some foodbanks are closed and helplines are overloaded but we ask that you remain calm & kind during this unprecedented situation. You can keep updated with all the latest information at www.covid19.govt.nz

 

MAKE A DONATION:

 

Whilst it is in our DNA to want to help others in time of need, donating food to your local foodbank poses a risk of community transmission. Therefore we ask you to refrain from this and make a financial contribution instead. We have partnered with the food rescue charity Love Soup to fundraise for their costs of collecting & distributing food to foodbanks, community organisations and individual families in need across Auckland, Waikato and the Bay of Plenty. If you can assist, it is truly appreciated.
