We are constantly overwhelmed at the amazing generosity of our beautiful Te Puke community from the individuals and families who drop in groceries, meat, clothing, furniture and produce, to the business community and funding organisations who so generously put their trust in us and the mission we are trying to achieve.

Food & Resources

Kai me ngā rauemi

We accept donations of food, fresh produce and also non-perishable items. These can be dropped to our foodbank at The Hub. Many businesses do a large collection and drop off in bulk whereas other individuals make regular smaller donations. We update our specific needs weekly on our Facebook page.



Volunteers are vital to our on-going success. Do you have a skill that could benefit us? If so, we’d love to hear from you. We offer a rewarding environment and celebrate our time together on a weekly basis at our whanau lunches.

To join our amazing volunteer team please either visit, phone or emails us.
