How Can You Help
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.
- Pak n Save: Paraparaumu
- Countdown: Paraparaumu
- New World: Waikanae & Kapiti (Paraparaumu)
Remember – just one extra food item in your weekly groceries, can make a huge difference to the assistance we can provide others.
What can You Donate?
We are aware that there is a difference between ‘best before’ & ‘use by’ dates, however due to health and safety reasons – please ensure;
- All donated food items are not past their expiry date
- The items have not already been opened
Some of these ‘Priority items’ fly off our shelves the moment we get them, so they are always appreciated;
- Pasta sauce
- Canned fish
- Pasta & noodles
- Canned spaghetti & baked beans
- Refreshments (including tea, coffee, milk & sugar)
- Spreads (including jam, honey, marmite & peanut butter)
For easier distribution, when catering for individual food parcels, we appreciate receiving smaller packets of rice, tea, coffee and sugar.
What About Fresh Fruit & Vegtables?
Fresh fruit and vegetables from the supermarket or your garden are always welcome – however we please ask that you deliver these items directly to the Foodbank between 8.30am – 12.30pm Mon-Fri (not the supermarket bins).
Like us on facebook – there you will find our weekly updates of the ‘priority items’.
