The St Vincent de Paul Dunedin foodbank is accessed through our George Street Shop, without appointment, Monday to Friday between 11am and 2pm.
We aim to treat all foodbank clients with respect and compassion, providing emergency short term food support for individuals and families. If transport is an issue, we can arrange delivery, in certain circumstances.
Food parcels consist of three days’ worth of meals, and other basic necessities. Food is sourced in a variety of ways including supermarket donation bins, Foodshare, conference contributions, members of the public who drop food in to our shops, Young Vinnies in schools, contribution baskets in Catholic Churches.
