New World 2020 Foodbank Appeal

Feed the New World 2020 Foodbank Appeal is all about giving, from one family to another.


What is the New World 2020 Foodbank Appeal?

New Zealand is a small country made up of one big family. And families look out for each other. Many New Zealanders are struggling to put food on the table, especially through winter. This year New World stores are aiming to donate over 140,000 filled bags to foodbanks nationwide to provide much-needed relief to Kiwi families in need. Simply donate a filled bag at your local New World and we will deliver directly to a foodbank in our community. Together we will bring some much-needed relief to more Kiwi families in need.

Help those who need it the most while you shop at New World.
