Kapiti Community Foodbank

Food Donations

You can assist by donating food which can either be delivered direct to the Foodbank, or by placing it in the bins at your local supermarket.

Monetary Donations

The Kapiti Community Foodbank Incorporated helps people from all walks of life, and for the price of a coffee you could be helping someone in your community when they need it most.

Supporting Businesses

As well as the locals who donate food & money on a daily basis, we are lucky enough to be supported by a number of local businesses.

Our Mission

Supporting The Community We Live In!

The KAPITI COMMUNITY FOODBANK INCORPORATED is a registered charity that could not exist without the assistance of volunteers.

 We service the Kapiti Coast.

Peka Peka – Paekakariki (Otaki have their own Foodbank).

REGISTERED CHARITY: CC26922

The Foodbank was set up in 1999 to provide free food parcels to the community, and relies on generous food and monetary donations for its continued operation. Food parcels are customised to suit the individuals or family’s needs, and will feed them for three days. 

We supply baby food, baby formula, nappies as well as catering for some dietary requirements including vegetarian food & gluten free items.

How Do I Get A Food Parcel?

All you need to get a food parcel is provide one of the following forms of ID*:

  • Drivers licence
  • 18+ card
  • Community services card
  • A recent utility bill or account with your current name and address

*Please note: On your FIRST visit to the Foodbank, you will be required to complete and sign a form agreeing to the Foodbank rules (which will be explained to you).

You will also need one form of ID as noted above PLUS proof of your physical address.

How Many Food Parcels Am I Entitled Too?

Each household is eligible for three food parcels per calendar year. If your needs exceed that, then you will be required to engage with a social support agency where they will carry out an assessment, and order a parcel on your behalf.

To ensure the team has enough time to complete your food parcel – please be at the Foodbank by 11.45am.
