We offer food parcels to individuals and families in need in the Upper Clutha region.
Where is it?
How does someone access it?
Donations to the food bank are gratefully received, and these can be dropped off at the Community Networks office, 73 Brownston Street, or in the marked bin at New World Wanaka. We are fortunate to receive regular donations from church groups and members of the community (thank you!). At Christmas time there is an annual food drive, which the whole community can get behind to collect food for local families in need.
Some items that your local food bank would really appreciate:
- Rice and pasta
- Pasta sauces
- Meats (we have a freezer)
- Canned fish
- Crackers, biscuits and muesli bars
- Baking goods
- Breakfast foods
Donations arrive from the 2015 Christmas food drive
