Support a local family this Christmas and donate to the Community Networks Foodbank.
SUPPORT A LOCAL FAMILY THIS CHRISTMAS
Every Christmas, the Community Networks Foodbank provides food parcels to local families.
Your donations will give someone a helping hand this festive season and beyond.
On average, for a family of four it costs:
- $10 for toddler snacks for a week
- $20 for a meal or toiletries kit
- $50 for a Christmas dinner hamper
- $100 for a standard food parcel for a week
Donate here or visit New World Three Parks and pick a gift card from the Christmas tree.
Thank you and Merry Christmas!
The Alpine Community Development Trust (ACDT), through its operating arms Community Networks and LINK, provides our region’s only one-stop community support and connection centre, serving the growing Upper Clutha community across the full wellbeing spectrum.
With a vision to ensure local individuals, families, community groups and initiatives thrive, not just survive, this unique organisation aims to provide information and support; connect and collaborate; and build resilient community.
Community Networks connects people to social support services, information and advice; operates the community Foodbank; coordinates Wheels to Dunstan transportation, Meals on Wheels services and JP appointments; provides a social worker, subsidised counselling and one-off financial support; and facilitates collaboration and training in the social sector.
LINK activates community development projects; enables cross-sector collaboration; supports community groups and initiatives with advice and funding; and strengthens neighbourhood connection.
The Community Networks Foodbank is well stocked with staple items including meat, dairy, and fresh fruit and vegetables, all generously donated by the Wānaka community and local businesses. Food parcels are available to anyone struggling to make ends meet by taking some of the pressure off day-to-day living costs for a while.
