Kapiti Community Foodbank 

How Can You Help The Kapiti Community Food Bank?

If you would like to assist the Food Bank by donating food, you can either deliver it direct to the Food Bank or put it in the Food Bank Bins at these supermarkets: 

• Pak'nSave: Paraparaumu

• Countdown: Paraparaumu

• New World: Paraparaumu & Waikanae 

Monetary donations can be left at the Foodbank or deposited to our account at ASB Paraparaumu (Account number: 12-3157-0048639-00).

If a receipt is required for tax refund purposes your name and address should be supplied.

What Can You Donate To The Food Bank?

We only have a few requirements for the food donated to the Kapiti Food Bank:

• It is not past its expiry date

• It has not been already opened or used

Some items fly off our shelves the moment we get them, so are always appreciated:

• Jam

• Peanut Butter

• 2 minute noodles

• Tinned Spaghetti

• Pasta Sauce

• Sugar

• Tea

• Instant Coffee

Fresh fruit and vegetables from your gardens are always welcomed at the food bank.

*This list will be updated according to our current needs.

With some items, such as coffee and rice, there are smaller sizes available that we love when we get these as they are easier for our volunteers to distribute.
