Lower Hutt Foodbank

  • COVID-19 suspension of service - from 23 March 2020     19 April 2020
    Posted by: Lower Hutt Foodbank

    The Lower Hutt Foodbank has reluctantly had to suspend its services to protect the safety of clients, volunteers and staff in the COVID-19 lock down. However, The Salvation Army and the Common Unity Project have stepped in to help and our clients are now receiving a contact-less delivery service. Your donation will be passed on to these partner organisations to ensure people in our community who need food are still receiving it. So, be assured that any donation you make will be used for the purpose you intended. Many thanks.

    The Foodbank has distributed an average of 2200 food parcels each year, with each parcel containing a week's food for the household. The estimated dollar value of all food parcels distributed in 2019 totals over $360,000.

  • Christmas Rush     23 December 2014
    Posted by: Lower Hutt Foodbank

    The Lower Hutt Foodbank Committee would like to thank all those who have donated much needed food and funds to the Lower Hutt Foodbank over the past few months. The charity expressed by businesses and individuals within the Hutt community is truly humbling.

    In October we re-established our operation within new premises on Dudley Street Lower Hutt as we had to vacate our former home at the back of the Horticultural Hall due to the earth-quake strengthening work being carried out on Council buildings.

    The demands on the Foodbank leading up to the Christmas holiday season have traditionally been very high and this year has been no exception. In the past week we have distributed close to 100 food parcels feeding approximately 500 adults and children. Your donations help make this possible.

    The Foodbank Committee would like to wish all our supporters a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
