Know someone who can’t do their shopping? 

New World has proudly partnered with the Student Volunteer Army to deliver groceries to those who need it most.

The Student Volunteer Army grocery service is available nationwide to those in self-isolation or who have no other way to access food.

The SVA Grocery Delivery Service is for those aged 65+, anyone who may be medically vulnerable, essential workers (and their whānau) and anyone that requires support due to their personal circumstances, such as single parents. Choose from a list of grocery essentials to fill your pantry and a friendly SVA volunteer will fulfil your shop at your local New World and deliver your groceries to your door – all completely contactless.

This service, which is in partnership with New World, is available across New Zealand.
