About Us


The Community Food Bank, Bay of Islands, Northland - Mauri Whanau Ora - The Essence of Family Wellbeing is a non profit Charity community group setup in 2016 and run by a passionate group of volunteers from in Paihia in the Bay Of Islands.

Our goal is to help as many families and individuals that need our help with food. We run on KOHA/Donations, Funding Grants, gifts of money, food etc from people that are willing to stand up and make a change to help our community. We work with Social Services throughout Mid North, Church groups, Marae’s and other Community groups.
