Countdown’s 2018 Food Rescue Christmas Appeal has now finished.
Thanks to everyone who donated.
Countdown and The Salvation Army have teamed up to help stock The Salvation Army’s foodbanks ahead of what could be New Zealand’s busiest winter ever for foodbanks.
More than 30,000 families are expected to need food and other relief from The Salvation Army this winter, when unexpected doctor visits and higher power bills put even more pressure on struggling families’ budgets.
You can make a difference, today.
Donated items are distributed to New Zealanders in need through The Salvation Army’s community hubs. This year’s Winter Bundle has been specifically designed to help a family out with fresh food such as a frozen chicken, potatoes and cheese; pantry staples such as gravy and spaghetti; and household items such as washing powder.
Please help. Your donation can help make sure there’s food on the table this winter.
