The Community Support Waitakere foodbank facilities and supplies have been moved across to Ranui Baptist Community Care, Ranui Baptist Church (back entrance) 464 Swanson Road, Ranui. This brings everything closer to more West Auckland households with food needs and further enhances the CareRanui Pāhara kai Foodbank team’s ability to provide much needed food and support services.

Community Support Waitakere will provide direct food delivery services only where the situation is an extreme emergency AND no other support options are available (ascertained after completed interview).
This is due to a lack of funding, human resources, and because we have to purchase most of our food supplies instead of receiving free/rescued food provisions; unlike many other foodbanks, which are able to rely on organisations like Fair Food, KiwiHarvest, Auckland City Mission. All other Food Parcel Requests will be referred to the nearest, most applicable organisation, relative to your location and circumstances. Please check the list above for your preferred West Auckland foodbank option before completing the Food Parcel Request form.
