The Foodbank can assist individuals or families up to four times each year provided we have the food to do so.
To ensure our team has enough time to complete your food parcel – please be at the Foodbank before 11.45am.
The variety of food we offer is purely what we have available by donation. We may not have everything you need. We cannot suit individual desires and do our best with what we have to assist with dietary issues. We sometimes have a limited range of baby food and nappies to offer. We sometimes have a limited range of petfood,
All food at the Foodbank is donated by the generosity of the Kapiti community. We are not funded by Government.
