Otaki Free Food Pantry

We are currently crowdfunding for a Winter Pantry Shelter and still hope to find a donor willing to fund this project.

The construct is designed to support family groups who need to stop by the food pantry’s during winter conditions safely and includes a ground hardened parking spot. This service will be desperately needed once the lock down is concluded. Please help.

Potentially, end of life single room cabins or similar are ideal. We are open to suggestions here options for submitted designs from materials.

  1. During this scary time of paying the bills and using what is left to purchase what little is left on the shelves in your supermarket, we are still working in the background, accepting donations of food and fresh veges, those products of a sanitary nature for both children and women, baby needs etc. We also deliver to those in need and will make up a box for you of what ever we have on hand. You can either pick it from us (Left for you on our picnic table in the driveway), or We will deliver it to your gate and you can collect it from there.

    What ever happens we will continue to support those in need of food without judgement nor do we have any criteria for helping you. We are there when all else fails.
