Midwinter Soup Drive at Tauranga City Libraries


Tauranga Foodbank is seeking donations of canned soup this winter. Soup is an item that Tauranga Foodbank cannot afford to purchase so they rely solely on kind donations.

Please note: though Tauranga Foodbank is seeking canned soup this winter, any non-perishable items will be gratefully received.

Drop offs at any Tauranga City Library (Tauranga, Papamoa, Greerton, Mount Maunganui)

Some interesting facts…

  • Tauranga Foodbank give out more than 6,000 cans of soup per year.  Soup is an item that we cannot afford to purchase so rely solely on donations. 
  • Tauranga Foodbank gave out 4,086 eggs just during May.
  • Foodbank works with 75 Social Agencies within our Community who identify those that need help and refer them on to Foodbank for assistance.
  • Tauranga Foodbank does not receive any government funding and relies solely upon our local community for donations of food and money.
