Kai Box


Are you, or is someone you know, in need of some extra kai?

The Neighbourhood Trust have free Kai Boxes available for households in Mairehau, St Albans, Shirley, and some surrounding areas in Christchurch, thanks to Food Secure Communities, MSD.

These will be available to pick up from The Whānau Centre at 49 Nancy Ave, Mairehau each Tuesday.

You will receive a confirmation text message with a time to pick up within 24 hours prior to collection.

Kai Boxes either consist of fresh fruit and vegetables, or a variety of staple grocery items such as canned goods and cereals.

CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS: We will be continuing to supply Kai Boxes over the holiday period.
