NZ Post has teamed up with New Zealand meal-kit home-delivery service provider My Food Bag to collect and deliver gifts and food to charities all over the country.
My Food Bag provides customers with ingredients and recipes to cook meals. Customers are encouraged to fill their empty My Food Bag boxes with gifts and food, which is then collected by NZ Post and delivered to charities all over New Zealand.
The initiative, which is called the My Christmas Gift campaign, proved to be a great success in 2017, with more than 1,500 boxes distributed by NZ Post. Over 20,000 items were collected and delivered to local charities including the City Mission and the Red Cross.
“Our partnership with NZ Post to make our My Christmas Gift campaign happen is something we are particularly proud of,” said Kevin Bowler, CEO of My Food Bag. “Last year we were overwhelmed by the generosity of customers, who donated thousands of food and gift items to families in need. We look forward to making Christmas a little bit brighter for many more families across New Zealand this festive season.”
