Help us fill hungry tummies around Aotearoa

Julia de Ruiter from The Salvation Army NZ

With chilly days and nights just around the corner, winter is a really tough time for some of our most vulnerable New Zealanders. Through these colder months, we see a consistently high demand for food assistance which stretches supplies and resources in our foodbank hubs.

You can help by donating a Winter Bundle today. We've teamed up with Countdown to select a range of useful items that we know our foodbanks need.

Help us fill hungry tummies around the country today. Donate online or pop a food donation into the specially marked purple bins in Countdown stores throughout June.
