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 each day between 9am – 4pm. You can access three food parcels per year, for four or subsequent parcels. As part of making our Community Pantry available, you are encouraged to also see Budget Advice Services or our Social Worker. We can help you will 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. You get to choose the items that you need in your food parcel.
