Last year, The Salvation Army alone distributed 55,425 food parcels to those in need.
The Foodbank Project is a not-for-profit, self-sustaining online grocery donation platform that makes it easy for anyone to donate online to help provide food to Kiwis in need.
In a first for New Zealand (read the background story), The Salvation Army, Lucid, and Countdown have teamed up to create a brand new donation platform that allows donors to select much-needed food items and make a donation to cover the purchase so they can be delivered to a local Salvation Army foodbank to include in their food parcels.
With The Foodbank Project, you know exactly what your donation will be used for and can be confident that your selection will reach people in need — and you’ll receive a tax deductible donation receipt, too.
Your donations towards food purchases will change lives for the better!
Each week, thousands of Kiwis unable to meet their food costs are helped by food parcels — providing them with a hand up when they need it most. Last year, The Salvation Army alone distributed 55,425 food parcels to those in need. That’s a lot of food!
We rely on generous food donations from businesses and individuals to meet this demand. Your support purchasing our most needed food items will help directly fill our food parcels.
