Fonterra-owned Anchor Dairy has partnered with the New Zealand Food Network for its annual Christmas appeal.
Research shows that an estimated one in five Kiwi families will go hungry during the Christmas period. To help these families in need, funds raised through the appeal will go directly towards food hampers. Anchor is donating fresh milk and cream, custard, butter and cheese into every hamper. Sanitarium and T&G Fresh are also donating their products.
For every $25 dollars raised through the appeal, a recipient family will get a hamper with $100 worth of Christmas goodies, including Christmas lunch essentials, fresh produce and dairy, pantry staples, and some treats for a family of four.
The hampers will be distributed by the New Zealand Food Network.
