Food Bank

Pataka Kai – Emergency food relief:

VisionWest Food Bank - Pātaka Kai - provides emergency food parcels for low income families and individuals. Many people in our community find themselves so financially stretched at times that they need a food parcel to get them through. A small quantity of food can make a big difference for people who find themselves in need or facing financial difficulties.

Food Bank’s team of dedicated volunteers can provide individuals or families with a food parcel that can last up to 2-3 days.


VisionWest Food Bank is just one of the ways we offer practical help in response to needs in our community. You can also visit our School Uniform Bank and Curtain Bank.

Pātaka Kai Opening Hours:

Tuesday - Friday, 12pm - 3pm.

You can support VisionWest Food Bank by contributing food items donations can be dropped off directly to the Food Bank during opening hours, or delivered to the VisionWest Community Trust main reception. You can also support us by becoming a VOLUNTEER or making a DONATION – people are generous but demand often exceeds the supply of donated items we receive. Thanks for your support.

Our work is always growing and evolving.
