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.

The Team from Wellington Water

As part of our work installing a new bulk watermain in eastern Porirua, we are about to commence work on installing a chamber and more pipework at the intersection of Conclusion St and Warspite Ave, Waitangirua.

From tomorrow, a one-way system will be in place with a detour route along Conclusion Street and Desert Gold Street.

Please avoid Warspite Ave where possible due to increased traffic. Where possible we will open two lanes for peak periods and out of hours.

Learn more about this project on our website.
