Your gift will provide food support for families like Kara’s

Kara’s two boys, Brooklyn (4) and Nathan (7), always wake up happy on Christmas Day.  The family ‘doesn’t really have a Christmas’, says Kara, but her boys are still young enough to be enchanted by the magic of it all – and enjoy even the simplest of surprises, when it’s possible.

Like most other kids, they love puddings. An ideal Christmas for this family looks very basic, just a few little extras like jelly to make the day memorable.

“We just have Christmas on our own, food is hard to get, it’s so expensive and I can’t afford a big Christmas meal.” - Kara

The effects of this tumultuous year have only heightened food insecurity for families who were already struggling on low incomes. 

Even before the pandemic, over 170,000 kids in NZ were living in households that couldn’t always afford to put healthy food on the table.

Feeding a family can be hard at the best of times, but at Christmas, a meal is about more than just food. It’s about building memories to be cherished for years to come.

“It would be a huge blessing to have support over Christmas for me and my kids.” – Kara
