About This Appeal

When New Zealand needs us this winter, we need you.


There is a new face of need. We may now be out of lockdown, but many Kiwis are not out of crisis. We are expecting the impact to be across the board, affecting housing, child poverty, food insecurtiy and addictions.

From previous experience, we know that need often presents as an immediate requirement for a food parcel. But this is the start of a longer journey, of addressing bigger and often complex underlying need or factors. It is the beginning; and just supplying a food parcel is not the whole solution.

We wrap an array of services around our clients, including:

During lockdown you joined with us to provide food parcels for thousands of people in need. There are signs emerging of growing pressure on our welfare services. We are aware there are a growing number who are now relying on Government support. 

Please join with us as we walk alongside Kiwis in the months, and even years to come.


Thank you for all you have already done. Thank you for all you will continue to do to support those who are in need now more than ever.
