How can you help?

Donate Funds

Contribute Financially!

We are powered by positivity, but lets face it, we also need money to run our operations. Help us to help others! Your donations make a real difference to the communities we support

Donate Time

We need more hands!

Foodbank Canterbury’s volunteer team is at the heart of our work – without our valuable volunteer force we would not be able to fulfil our mission

Donate Food

Do you have surplus food?

 If you have quality surplus food that you would like picked up and delivered to a community organisation that feeds the hungry, please let us know


Westpac Champion Business Awards 2018


New Zealanders throw away 122,547 tonnes of food including 20 million loaves of bread  a year!

And yet across New Zealand, 270,000 kids go to school every morning without breakfast or go to bed each night without dinner


Foodbank Canterbury puts surplus food to good use in a sustainable way. We get surplus food safely to the hungry. While hundreds of Cantabrians go hungry each day, safe, healthy and usable food is being disposed of as waste. Foodbank Canterbury collects this nutritious surplus food from all segments of the food industry including restaurants, grocers, supermarkets, wholesalers, hotels and caterers.

The food we deliver helps organisations serve thousands of healthy meals each week and reduce their annual grocer bills - freeing up funds that can be reinvested in other vital support services like medical care and counselling. The food we rescue is diverted from going to landfill where it would release gases toxic to the environment. We distribute food that nourishes both body and soul.


Get in touch with Foodbank Canterbury to learn more about donating food, our work and how you can get involved.
