Food Bank

The Food Bank is run in conjunction with our Budget Service and is primarily to help budgeting clients by providing food so the budgeted grocery money can be used to pay unexpected expenses. Clients have to commit to regular visits. We also provide ‘one off’ emergency food parcels.

Location:   Our office is located at the Morrinsville Baptist Church 56 Moorhouse Street, Morrinsville.
