Family Works Foodbank

Our foodbank is Dunedin’s busiest and has experienced record demand recently, due to the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and rising costs of living. We are so very grateful to all the individuals and businesses who have stepped up to help fill the foodbank at this exceptionally busy time.

We’ve also set up an online donation page for anyone who would like to support our foodbank financially. Online donations enable us to bulk purchase food items when stocks get low and allow us to plan for the coming months.

Currently our Family Works team is gearing up for the Christmas season, making sure that food parcels and hampers will be ready for those in need across the region. We anticipate we’ll be working alongside over 250 families this Christmas season and that demand will remain high well into the new year.
