Following a 7.8 magnitude earthquake that affected Kaikoura and the surrounding areas in November 2016, Kaikoura was cut off by road and there was severe damage to buildings and infrastructure.
Suncorp formed a partnership with My Food Bag and Goodman Fielder to get food bags delivered to impacted people and emergency service workers in Kaikoura, and surrounding rural areas. We worked with organisations including the Salvation Army, local Marae, Maori Wardens, the local church, the Fire Service, the Police, The Rural Support Trust, District Nurses and Plunket, to ensure that we reached people who had their homes damaged and needed some economic relief.
Between December 2016 and February 2017, 800 households received our food bags and enjoyed 16,000 hot meals.
Annie McLean, Manager of the Waiau Earthquake HUB Committee said, “Not only were the food bags brilliant, they provided the opportunity to connect with people who we could help in other ways". Watch more.
