VisionWest’s Pātaka Kai – an essential service – continues to operate throughout Level 2. However, the Pātata Kai on the VisionWest campus remains CLOSED. Food is being distributed by delivery only – please read update below.


UPDATE 13th May

Pātaka Kai now operates in the following way:

We deliver food to your home – you CANNOT pick up food from Pātaka Kai. For the safety of you and our staff, do NOT come to the Pātaka Kai site, we are not allowed to permit you to enter.

We are supplying food by delivery – we will bring a food parcel to your place.

Because food is limited, food parcels are for EMERGENCY supply only. If you are able to access your local supermarket, please go there first.

Please be patient – delivery of food can take a while to organise. Our aim is to meet the food needs of your whānau while ensuring your safety and the safety of our staff.

If you have a need for an emergency food parcel, please contact us – phone: 09 818 0781.


Please remember:

During this time, the quantity of food in your parcels may vary from what you are used to. Please be aware that VisionWest is doing everything we can to keep a consistent emergency food supply to you during these uncertain times.

Please remember to wash your hands and to be kind to each other as we work through this challenging time together.
