Karori Food Bank
The Karori Food Bank is supported by the five local Karori churches - St. Ninian, St. Anselm, Karori Baptist, St. Teresa’s and Karori Anglican. Dawn Morrison serves on the Board as a representative of St. Mary’s and Shirley Black takes care of all the financials, but we need more help! There are two possible vacancies - someone to collect the bread from Brumby’s at 4:30 pm and take it across the street to the Food Bank in the Karori Community Centre and someone else to pack the bread away and make one delivery. Both jobs require a car and the first also requires a bit of muscle. The roster is one month on, one month off. KAC is under-represented on the roster, so they are looking to us to fill these roles. If you can help please contact Dawn dawninnz@gmail.com
