IMPORTANT NOTICE - Supporting our Community

In light of ongoing budget constraints, we want to share some updates regarding our food services to ensure fair distribution. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

  1. Fresh produce is available once a fortnight per household.

  2. Non-perishable items (booster boxes/shop) are provided once every four weeks per household.

  3. Requests are limited to the first 65 households each week, and the form is open from Tuesday 10 am to Friday 4 pm or until the limit is reached.

  4. Requests are prioritised for households that have not yet accessed food security services from other food banks or community service providers.

***********************************

For emergency food assistance, fill out the referral form below, dynamically available on our webpage. We will reach out via phone or text with collection details, usually on the following Monday from 2 pm to 4:30 pm (excluding public holidays).

Our non-perishable booster boxes and nutritious fresh produce boxes serve as a temporary food security lifeline for the Hibiscus Coast community.  If you reside outside our catchment area, consult local food banks or find Auckland-wide assistance here.

Considering our food boxes offer short-term assistance, we recommend exploring available support from Work and Income. You can call 0800 559 009 or visit Food Assistance for eligibility details.  Alternatively, you may find the MSD urgent need guide helpful.

In urgent situations, contact us – we're here to help. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
