New World Family2Family Campaign

How to donate

The New World 2023 Family2Family Foodbank Appeal is all about giving, from one family to another!

This is your chance to support a family facing food insecurity by donating non-perishable food items. Between 24 April – 7 May, you will have the opportunity to fill a bag with products when you’re in-store, and drop it off at the in-store collection point. You can also purchase a pre-filled bag and donate your Flybuys points at the checkout.

You’ll be supporting foodbanks around the country – including ours!

A huge thank you to New World for their generous support helping New Zealanders put food on the table. Read more about the campaign here.

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, toothbrushes and toothpaste, toilet paper and period products.
  • And it never hurts to pop in a little treat like chocolate or chips to make someone’s day when things are pretty tough.
