Food & Goods


The foodbank helped to nourish the stomachs of 878 children and young people.

July-September, 2019

Every day individuals and families come to The Mission asking for food support, when they are struggling to make ends meet.

Many of those who walk through our door are more likely to have inadequate diets with poorer nutrition.

The Mission runs one of Wellington’s largest food banks and is entirely dependent on donations from generous Wellingtonians to fill food bags which we give to those in need and for the ingredients for the daily meals we serve in our Drop-in Centre in Newtown.

We also supply clothing, bedding and household items to people who are struggling.

Food items we regularly run short of include:

  • Breakfast spreads
  • Muesli and Weetbix
  • Milk powder and sugar
  • Tinned soup
  • 2-minute noodles
  • Tinned tomatoes/pasta sauce
  • Pasta
  • Tinned fish/meat/vegetables
  • Biscuits
  • Muesli bars
  • Up & Go breakfast drinks
  • Laundry powder
  • Bodywash
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Deodorant
  • Baby wipes

Food and goods can be dropped into The Mission at 19 Gordon Place, Newtown, between the hours of 9.00am and 3.30pm Monday to Thursday, and 10.30am – 3.30pm Friday.

Our office is closed on public holidays.
