Pilot launch of The Foodbank Project
The Foodbank Project is a not-for-profit project created by Lucid with the support of The Salvation Army and Countdown.
It is essentially an online grocery store where everything you buy is given directly to New Zealanders in need.
The project is currently in its pilot phase and we are distributing all food through the Salvation Army’s Royal Oak food bank.
We are currently work on the next phase to roll out the project to main centres around New Zealand and, hopefully early in the new year, smaller centres.
It is an extremely exciting project as it is becoming increasingly clear, the more time I spend with the people running the food banks, just how big the need is here in New Zealand.
