Kiwi Community Assistance
Working together to reduce inequality in our communities
Who we are
Kiwi Community Assistance (KCA) helps communities throughout Wellington by rescuing surplus food and household goods, and redistributing it to frontline agencies working directly with people in need.

What we provide
- Food that is rescued and donated is redistributed Monday to Friday with agencies collecting it from our depot
- Clothing, shoes, children's reading books (we don't accept adult fiction/non fiction) , school stationery supplies, etc collected from our Grenada North warehouse Monday to Friday mornings from 9.00am to noon by our partner agencies
- Whiteware and furniture in good working condition ** due to Covid-19 and the housing crisis we are not accepting these items**
How we do it
- 1 Collect donations from the drop off points (There are a few reopening in mid/late June 2022)
- 2 Donations are sorted
- 3 Agencies place orders
- 4 Volunteers make up the orders
- 5 Agencies take orders directly to the recipient (non food Monday to Friday 9am to noon)
At present we are only accepting winter clothing, shoes, kids toys, nappies, winter blankets, (NO SOFT TOYS as its flu season), kids reading books, baby gates, as this is the items that we are very short of to fulfil orders in our system.

You can help us by donating...
These items include perishable and non-perishable food, household items and appliances, baby gear and clothing.
KCA has limited funding and we make any financial donation stretch as far as possible,
no matter how big or small.
We are always looking for volunteers to fill a variety of roles during the week and the weekend.
We are an independent group of like minded people working together to reduce inequality in our community. We will do this by providing household goods, clothing and food for free to our charity partners.
