Palmy food banks

Monday August 30 2021

A big shout out to all our food banks in Palmy. We love your work. Tēnā rawa atu koutou.

Photo shows Just Zilch patrons holding up bags of bread, meat and vegetables. There's plenty more on the shelves in the aisle behind them.

Just Zilch: Please note, this photo was taken before lockdown. At Alert Level 3 or 4, please wear a mask and practice physical distancing when collecting food parcels.

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.
