Community Pantry Kaiapoi

The Kaiapoi Community Pantry (Food Bank) is completely reliant on the good will of the people of Kaiapoi. We provide food to approx 45-50 families a month and operate on a tight budget.

About our service

Our Community Pantry is open Monday to Thursday between 10am – 2pm. You can access three food parcels in a 12 month period, for four or subsequent parcels, you need to be working with Budget Advice or other recognised support agency. We can help you with making contact with these services.

Our Community Pantry runs solely off donations of food and money from the residents and service clubs of Kaiapoi. Donations can be made at our premises at 24 Sewell Street, Kaiapoi.

We provide an understanding, personal, confidential approach through our Community Pantry service. We take time to provide education about cooking on a budget or different ways to cook the food given. We can accommodate dietary needs in your food parcel.
