Food Donors

Around 90% of all food distributed by the Foodbank is donated to the Foodbank by members of the Hutt community. We are very grateful to the numerous church communities, sports groups, schools, businesses, supermarkets, and individuals who have made, and continue to make donations over the years. It is you who are the backbone of the Lower Hutt Community Foodbank.

We are very grateful for the support we receive from the congregations of a wide variety of churches in the Lower Hutt area.  Every week their representatives drop in food collected at their Sunday services and it is much appreciated.

A special thank-you goes to the following Hutt Valley supermarkets for their support. They supply us with many food items and baked goods throughout the year, and also support us for the May and November Newstalk ZB-sponsored food day appeals.

A special thanks goes to Pak 'n Save Petone.  It matched all the food donations left for the Foodbank October, November and December 2015 with a donation of over $7000.

Thank-you also to Kaibosh the Wellington-based food-rescue organisation that supplies the Foodbank with fresh produce, bread and other food items each week.
