LEVEL 2 RESPONSE   2 June 2020

Posted by: Society of St Vincent de Paul East Auckland Area Council

As we enter we enter into COVID19 Level 2 as a nation, the need for food assistance still remains high. Although the incoming referrals by phone and emails have leveled out, the demand for food assistance from partnering organisations and other providers of social services continues to increase.

It is envisioned that this need will increase over the next part of the year will increase as job insecurity increases with the cutting back of paid hours and the loss of jobs. The St Vincent de Paul food-banks throughout Auckland continue to process up to 850+ family food-boxes per week.

Currently the Civil Defence Emergency Management, are assisting with some of the funding towards the procurement of bulk food supplies to meet this need.

The Society is also grateful to the Catholic Caring Foundation, Kiwiharvest, Auckland Citymission ,the Ministry of Primary Industries amongst all the individual generous donors who are assisting with the provision of funding and also the supply of bulk food.

Volunteers and St Vincent de Paul staff continue to work hard to ensure that hundreds of these food boxes are packed and processed each week ready for distribution to those need the support.
