Lower Hutt Community Foodbank - Helping people in need since 1986

Wellington

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.

In the year ending June 2021,the Foodbank distributed over 2300 food parcels to support over 3000 weeks of food for adults and over 4000 for children. The estimated dollar value of all food parcels distributed totals over $250,000.

The Foodbank works within the Hutt Kai Collective to ensure the whole community is supported during these difficult times.
