More about our Foodies Foundation
One of our values at Foodies is ‘in it together’. For us this is about looking after each other and backing each other in the good times, and the bad. We know that together, there’s nothing that’s too hard and that no journey is ever done alone. That’s right across the North Island – from our stores, to our Support Centre and Supply Chain teams.
Whether it’s one of our team who is suddenly homeless from a natural disaster, someone who has just been diagnosed with a serious illness, or a parent facing the loss of a child, we want to be able to help, and help fast.
Why we're doing it
We reckon we’ve got the potential to make a real difference to our Foodies family through the tough times. We want to be a team with our eyes and ears open to others, to be generous and willing to share a little of what we have so that together we all keep going. The Foodies Foundation gives us our own very special way of doing this.
How it works
The Foodies Foundation will be funded by donations from our Members and employees. All Members or permanent and fixed term Foodstuffs North Island, store, Foodstuffs New Zealand, Foodstuffs Own Brands or Liquorland employees, who have been with the business for six months or more, will be able to make an application to the Foodies Foundation in times of need.
Each month our Foodies Foundation Trustees – a mix of people from across our Co-op meet to decide where the funds go.
Be part of it
There's a lot of us in the Foodies family, so we already know there are people who need our support straight away. We'd love you to be part of it by donating, applying or helping fundraise – it'll only work if we’re in it together. We’re excited to see where this new chapter will take us. It’s quite literally life changing stuff!
You can set up a regular donation, or a one-off of any amount. It’s totally up to you. There’s no obligation and you’ll be able to opt in and out as you’re able.Donate
