Far North Community Foodbank Trust

Far North Community Foodbank Trust

Still feeding those in need after 23 years. For year July '22-June '23 we provided 1,141 food parcels feeding 1,653 adults & 1,733 children


We are doing all we can to stay open despite the pandemic, major weather events and now, this Cost-of-Living-Crisis for whatever follows - can you help us?

The purpose of the Foodbank is to supply emergency food and household items to vulnerable individuals and families within the Far North Region.

Each food parcel has enough food for 5-7 days with breakfast, lunch, dinner and even snacks for the number of people in the household.

Based in Kaitaia, our Community Foodbank is part of a network that brings support to our social services of the Far North Community.

A key role in bringing help and hope to people in need.

As a non-profit Charity we rely on the generosity of our community, local organisations and funding bodies and our amazing Volunteers to help continue this much needed service.

We work extremely hard to stretch every dollar and every resource.

Sadly there is a shortage of resources as we continue to struggle with the long term sustainability of the Foodbank. We continue to investigate and welcome all forms of support and assistance as every little bit really does help.

More about us

The Far North Community Foodbank was registered as an Incorporated Society on 9 August 2000 and was registered as a Charity on 27 June 2008.

In mid 2000 The Salvation Army and St Vincent de Paul saw a need in our community and established the Far North Community Foodbank Trust.

The trust has now grown to include 6 local organisations forming the Trust Committee.

The Trust meet monthly to oversee the Far North Community Foodbank and ensure the best possible outcome for the community.

Each agency is well established in the local community and is working at grass roots level with their clients thus giving a more effective WRAP-AROUND-SERVICE.

The Trust Members’ diverse client base enables them to meet the needs of those most vulnerable in our society.

Clients wishing to access the Foodbank come via one of the referral agencies who conduct a full assessment and establish any underlying needs as well as encouraging clients to make ongoing positive life changes.
