Food Donations

How Can You Help

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.

  • 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;

  • Soup
  • 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’.
