Updated: Mar 28

Update: Kirikiriroa Family Services Trust is not a Food Bank or service that provides kai parcels to the general public. If you are in Kirikiriroa (Hamilton) there are services that can assist you getting kai, other than WINZ, please go to our links page for details. If you live elsewhere in Aotearoa and require help with kai please consult with your local Community Houses, Food Banks, Churches, Runanga or WINZ offices.
