Access to food & essential items

Talk to your family, whānau, friends and neighbours to see if they could deliver essential items to you.  

Mangawhai has a wide variety of other food options as well as our main supermarkets. Some might get too busy or need to close for deep cleaning. Have a look at our Local Essential Services to find other food & delivery options - this will be updated regularly to show which services are available.

Otherwise, try food delivery such as supermarket home delivery, Bidfood, food parcels, frozen pre-prepared meals, subscription food boxes (like My Food Bag and Hello Fresh) or any other whole-food delivery service. 

If you need food urgently in Mangawhai, Te Whai Community Trust may be able to help. 

You can get financial assistance for food through Work and Income.
