Apply for a Food Parcel
HOW TO APPLY
If you are in need of a food parcel or have been declined by Work & Income (WINZ) you can apply to your local foodbank for food assistance. Visit our Directory first to find a foodbank in your area and contact them directly to make an appointment. Please note that we do not issue food parcels through our website.
Each foodbank has different application criteria. It is advisable to call them in the first instance to find out what their criteria processes are when making an appointment.
When attending your appointment you may need to provide the following;
Proof of Address
Referral letter from WINZ or Social Agency.
Medical history including disclosing any allergies.
Family Harm or Police reports.
YOUR APPOINTMENT & PRIVACY
Failure to attend your appointment without reasonable cause could result in your food parcel being forfeited to another family. Failure to disclose any information requested or providing false information will result in your application being declined. Any information you do provide is covered under the Privacy Act 2020 and you have the right to view and correct that information.
Please follow all instructions in regard to Covid-19 protocols and remember to be kind.
