Kapiti Foodbank Gets A New Home

The Kapiti Community Foodbank has moved.

From tomorrow it’s operating at the rear of the Paraparaumu Te Newhanga Kāpiti Community Centre.

Serving people from Paekakariki to Peka Peka

The Foodbank is a volunteer-run charity that services the community from Paekākāriki to Peka Peka.

The organisers have been on the lookout for new premises for some time and Paraparaumu /Raumati Community Board members have attempted to help.

Kāpiti Community Foodbank co-ordinator Kerry Lovell (pictured right in photo) says a special shout out must be given to Tania, Claire and Kara from KCDC who have been extremely helpful in finding new premises.

During the recent Covid-19 lockdown the Paraparaumu/Raumati Community Board gave the Kapiti Community Foodbank a grant to assist with purchasing items for the Foodbank.

Councillor Bernie Randall and Deputy Chair of the Community Board Guy Burns say they’re pleased with the grants to the Foodbank provided by the Board in recent times.

The grants are crucial in ‘supporting our low-income families and seniors.],” say Randall and Burns.
