Do you need help with food during Alert Levels 3 or 4?
While the Ministry for Social Development is your first port of call if you need financial support to buy food, we have some great local organisations that you can pick up food from too.
Buses are still operating if you need transport. If you have challenges getting to a food bank, you can also call them directly to arrange contactless delivery.
Please make sure you wear a mask and practice physical distancing when collecting food parcels.
