Tauranga Community Foodbank Trust
The Tauranga Community Foodbank Trust is a local charity providing support (in the form of food parcels) to families and people in need in the Tauranga region. In 2018 they helped 14,000 people from all walks of life throughout our city with over 5,000 food parcels. They successfully partner with various social services in the Bay of Plenty who write Food Parcel referrals for families and individuals in need.
The Tauranga Community Foodbank Trust successfully make a huge difference in the lives of many people in need. These parcels send kids to school with breakfast and lunch and provide evening meals for families feeling the pressure of rising rents and stretched incomes.
In 2019 Tauranga Foodbank received funding from the J Chappell-Mathias and C Toop Funds.
