Because no one should have to rummage through the rubbish for food

Auckland

Sunday Blessings believes that no one surviving without shelter should be forced to search through rubbish bins for food, especially when local business in areas impacted by homelessness have daily food surplus.

Since formation in 2018 we have coordinated over 40,000 meals predominantly from food waste for the unhorsed community of Auckland central, each Sunday at the Ellen Melville Centre.

We offer an answer to food insecurity every Sunday alongside our partners Orange Sky who provide shower and washing services. When provide community donated clothing, blankets and more where we can.

With the impact Covid 19 has had on local business operations, we have lost alot of our surplus food donations, but we have not lost our enthusiasm to keep providing nor our large volunteer army.

This is where we ask the community for help to help our un-homed.

When donating to us 100% of the funds raised go to the people who need it.

Our goal is to use what donations the community can spare to keep providing evening food until local business surplus is available. This will take time.

We have ongoing affiliations with the following awesome groups/organisations:

AUT, Koha Apparel, The Ellen Melville Centre, Starbucks Symonds St, Glendowie Primary, Tender Love & Care, St Georges rowing Cook Strait crossing crew, Orange Sky, maybe your group?!

Thank you

New year, same problem   6 January 2022

Evening all,

Hope everyone has had a relaxing holiday break.

This year Sunday Blessings alongside continuing our service to the food and housing insecure peoples of Auckland we are utilising every resource we have to debate in parliament the fundamental human right of accessibility to food for children.

We are teaming up with Commissioner's, Documentary makers and more to fight for accessibility to food for children regardless of their parents circumstances.

If enough people sign our petition (created by AUT LLB students) we have to be given the floor, check out what documentary maker Bryan Bruce says about the right to food in relation to the Sunday Blessings petition here:
