Lower Hutt Community Foodbank - Helping people in need since 1986

Main image

Food

Since 1986 the Lower Hutt Community Foodbank has been responding to people's immediate needs through the provision of free emergency food parcels. And because we believe in helping people by giving them a 'hand-up' and not just a 'hand-out', we also refer them to other community support organisations when additional assistance is required.

Our database has details of over 2600 households representing more than 3300 adults and 4000 children. Each of these households has received at least one parcel from the Foodbank since January 2010. The Foodbank has distributed over 14,600 parcels from January 2010 to end June 2014. The estimated dollar value of all food parcels distributed totals over $1.9M.
