This year’s campaign will once again be raising funds for the City Mission Food Banks in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. These central food bank hubs distribute food through close to 140 separate locations throughout New Zealand.

Thanks to the support of our Principal Sponsor Goodman Fielder, 100% of all funds raised will be used for the vital work these charities undertake across New Zealand, helping to feed, clothe and support those in our community who at times need a helping hand. 

According to the most recent data available from the Ministry of Health, 7.3% of New Zealand households are experiencing low food security and frequently have insufficient food. Food insecurity is increasing among low income groups in New Zealand and has been shown to have a detrimental effect on children’s physical and psychological health and development. 

The Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch City Mission Foods Banks distribute food at close to 140 separate locations throughout the south and north islands of New Zealand. 

All are New Zealand registered charities. You can find out more about the valuable works they undertake via their respective websites (click on the logos).

‘At a time where Food Bank shortages meant that Wellington City Mission staff needed to re-evaluate the eligibility of our food parcels to ensure resources were used more effectively, we were elated to receive a cheque from DineAid 2016 to replenish our shelves. We cannot fulfill the work we do within the Wellington community without the generosity of events like this, and The Mission is indebted to Mark Gregory and the whole DineAid team. We look forward to another successful campaign in 2017!’.

"At the most basic level we all want to provide for our families but circumstances often conspire against us. Factors such as physical illness, depression, addiction, an inability to budget and unemployment can strike any of us at any time. When that happens the City Mission is there to encourage, advise and also to provide immediate assistance by way of food parcels. Dine Aid makes it possible for us to reach out and help. Through Dine Aid the hospitality industry enables us to show hospitality and love. Thank you Dine Aid."

"Parents and caregivers have the right to be able to feed their families. I can’t begin to express the level of helplessness that is generated when people cannot feed those they love. Your donation through DineAid helps this good work happen everyday, thank you for your extraordinary kindness."

Wellington City Mission

"Dine Aid’s support over the last two years has been invaluable. The Mission works 365 days a year offering emergency and long term support. This is only possible with the care and passion of organisations like Dine Aid.’"
