As the COVID-19 lockdown continues, so does our work at KCA.

As an essential service, our volunteers are doing their best to make sure good food still reaches those who need it during these challenging times. The need is greater than usual and so many people are struggling.

Unfortunately the non-perishable food that we had in stock has been significantly depleted that we require your help. The funds donated will allow us to purchase in more non-perishable food to distribute to local foodbanks plus our operating costs during the lockdown.

KCA is still working to redistribute food to local foodbanks and groups in Wellington, Porirua and Hutt Valley area. Some of the agencies are Salvation Army, Wellington City Mission, Soup Kitchen Wellington, Wellington Night Shelter, St Annes Pantry Foodbank, Newlands Foodbank, St Vincent de Paul Kapi Mana Foodbanks.

We are humbled by all that our food donors and partner charities are doing to help feed so many families who are being hit hard at the moment. We have temporarily paused our non- food operations.

To ‘shrink our bubble’ we have a small crew of volunteers working hard through the lockdown to rescue and redistribute food.

We’re checking in with our volunteers regularly to make sure the whole team is doing OK.

KCA thanks everyone for their generousity but need your help to raise funds to continue as with the interesting time that we live in most of our funding streams have gone.

In the weeks and months ahead KCA are going to need a huge amount of support. Please consider making a donation to help us feed Wellingtonians who are struggling more than ever right now.

We still need your help.

In the month of April and May our volunteers rescued and redistribute nearly 72 tonnes of food to our partner agencies.

Unfortunately our chiller truck needs some repairs on it. Without this work being done we it won't pass its COF. We are also finding it a lot harder operating with only 1 truck when we usually have 2 on the road most days.

If you are able to please us by donating a few dollars this will help elevate the cost that we have to pay to North City Diesel.
