Food for Love


Food Services




Wānaka, Hāwea

There are times in our lives when we all need a little bit of help. Giving meals is not a new concept, however, in today's world, we have forgotten how we use to be. Food For Love is putting back, and we would love for you to join the movement, in whatever way you can.

Food for Love is a volunteer group that has become well known in the community, helping many families and individuals in the area and providing 1000's of meals when people have been unwell, struggling financially, grieving or just needing a little bit of home cooked love.

We are supported by a number of local businesses who donated food and in some cases meals, as well as receiving funds from generous donors which helps us top up our food stores and keep volunteer supplied with new ingredients to work their magic with!

​Always on the lookout for new volunteers we would love for you to join our group! This is a great way to meet new people, and help others. Making a difference in peoples lives - one meal at a time.


Volunteers are welcome to cook at home, at our group cooking sessions or to help deliver food to nominees. There are a range of options. We can provide some ingredients for volunteers, and our group cooking sessions have the ingredients ready to create delicious meals with. However many volunteers donate the meals and their time and we are so grateful for this generosity. Delivery drivers don't have to cook - they can just help with the important part at the end of the chain and ensure nominees receive their meals.

Time commitment

Flexible. A call for volunteers is put out when a need is there and volunteers able to help can do so if they wish.
