Waitara Foodbank - Kai Potaka 


Please bring suitable I.D and proof of address.

Our purpose is to work with the people of Waitara and the surrounding districts in maintaining a community foodbank and providing an emergency food assistance service. We aim to promote positive attitudes of self-sufficiency for all recipients of our food parcels.

​Opening Hours:​

We are no longer taking walk-in requests for emergency food parcels during the COVID-19 alert. However, we have provisions for people to be referred to us directly by social services, Iwi and Hapu.

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10am - 2pm there will be a table outside the hall on West Quay with request forms for people to fill out and leave in the box provided.

Our volunteers will follow up these requests by phone or email within 24 hours. For those who cannot make it to the hall we have an online form for you to complete. Please email or PM us via Facebook for further details.
