Family Works Food Bank
Redundancy, unexpected large bills, illness – there are many reasons why some families find themselves in extreme financial circumstances. The Family Works South Canterbury food bank provides urgent assistance to families we are working with.
Emergency food parcels of daily essentials are provided on a case by case basis. Families needing short-term support usually connect through Family Works services.
Local Community Support
The Family Works South Canterbury food bank is made possible through generous and ongoing local community support.
Thanks to donations from the South Canterbury community (including individuals, families, businesses and groups) Family Works are able to provide 40-60 food parcels each month, in the past 12 months Family Works has distributed over 800 food parcels to support children and families in South Canterbury.
With a steady increase in the number of families seeking urgent assistance, continued community support will enable us to keep making a difference when and where help is most needed.
Thank you Community Trust Mid & South Canterbury $10,000 towards our Food Bank
