Kairos Foodbank is operated in Kerikeri by the Kairos Connection Trust which is registered with the Charities Commission. We have strong links with Kerikeri Baptist Church, Northern Community Family Service (financial mentoring and whanau support) and the Aroha Room in Moerewa.
All orders for food parcels are received through the Northern Community Family Service (Phone 09 407 7800) or through local churches, schools, early childhood centres, midwives etc. Food parcels can be collected Monday-Friday 8.30am–12.30pm. We can only deliver parcels in exceptional circumstances e.g. under Level 4 Covid-19.

If you would like to contribute canned or packaged food items to our foodbank you may drop them off through the Northern Community Family Service, contact detail above. We can only accept fresh food items that have a good shelf life e.g. potatoes are great but feijoas not.
