Hoon Hay Foodbank provides support in the form of food parcels to families and people in need within the Christchurch region. 

Corrin Webster, a local community member wanted to make a difference in the lives of those in need and formed the Hoon Hay Foodbank from his home, and at his own expense. His goal is to keep everyone fed and with the large demand, the average number of families/individuals he feeds per week is between 150-200. The foodbank is under the aegis of Rowley Resource Centre to support the fantastic work he is doing to support those in need.

To request a food parcel:

  • You must pick up. Please do not request a delivery as Corrin works independently and volunteers his generous time around his family. 
  • You will need to fill out a form with your details when picking up your food parcel. 

If you have received a food parcel from the Hoon Hay Foodbank before, you must wait another 21 days before you can request another.

Please contact Corrin/Nicole directly on 022 151 2945 to arrange for a food parcel or visit the Hoon Hay Foodbank Facebook page for more information.

Donations: If you wish to donate food items like tinned foods, non perishables etc. or if you want to make a monetary donation please contact Corrin.
