Food Bank

Many of our food parcel recipients are facing hardship and struggle to even feed their families and it is often the children who suffer the most when household budgets don’t stretch far enough.

 

How can you help?

Our food bank relies on your donations.  When you donate food, or money so we can purchase food, you are helping to provide one of life’s most basic necessities to those who need it most.  All donations can be dropped off at our church office, 72 View Road, Mt Eden.
