Help a Kiwi family in need today

The New World 2021 Foodbank Appeal is all about giving, from one family to another.
How to donate

Fill a bag with grocery items to help Kiwis who need it the most. We're joining in by donating $250,000 to the City Missions and local foodbanks across New Zealand.

Pick up a Family2family paper bag at your local New World, fill it with foodbank-friendly products and drop it off at the collection point in store. We'll will deliver your donation directly to City Missions and local foodbanks throughout New Zealand.

Or you can choose to donate your Flybuys points towards New World gift cards for New Zealand’s City Missions in the Flybuys store until Sunday 4 July.

How it works

What are foodbank-friendly products?

Our local foodbanks desperately need non-perishable products that are typical household essentials. These household essentials may be anything from canned goods and spreads, tea and coffee, rice and pasta to non-food products like soap, toothpaste, shampoo and sanitary products.

Look out for foodbank-friendly products highlighted in your local New World.

  • Tins of soup, baked beans, spaghetti, fruit and vegetables, soup, kidney beans, mixed beans, chickpeas, tomatoes, pasta sauce.
  • Things that make a hearty base of a meal like rice, pasta and noodles are good.
  • Breakfast cereal is a great staple and things for the pantry like sugar, flour, tea bags and crackers.
  • Hygiene basics are important like soap, toilet paper and tampons.
  • And it never hurts to pop in a little treat like chocolate or chips to make someone’s day when things are pretty tough.

Foodbank-Friendly Pre-Filled Bags

We are selling Pre-Filled Bags in our New World stores during the campaign period for $20 each. We have filled each bag with a selection of foodbank-friendly products at a great price to make it even easier to donate! Simply buy a bag for $20 and drop off at the collection point instore.
