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.

Poll: Should the Basin Reserve be renamed Support Women's Sport Basin Reserve?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

A $100,000 fundraising drive is about to kick off to get two years of naming rights for the Basin Reserve. The move, to rename it Support Women's Sport Basin Reserve, has the support of Wellington Mayor Justin Lester and councillor Fleur Fitzsimons. "We will be sending an important message to girls and women across the world that in Wellington we value the role of women in sport," Fitzsimons said.

Keep NZ homes stink bug free

Biosecurity New Zealand

The brown marmorated stink bug is a pest that can infest your home in the thousands, stinks when crushed, and is almost impossible to get rid of. It is also a major threat to our fruit and vegetable industries.

It’s not in New Zealand yet and we want to keep it that way. It hibernates inside homes.
