City Mission sets up online food bank

City missions in Wellington, Auckland and now Christchurch are benefiting from an online food bank provided by a fundraising website called Fundy.

“Basically we sell the products online, people go on and buy the products, and at the end of the month all of the products that have been purchased [on the online food bank] are given to the city mission itself,” Fundy co-founder Tanerau Tuuta says.

The past two months have seen goods donated to the Auckland and the Wellington city missions. This month the products bought will be given to the Christchurch City Mission.

Tuuta set the website up with a friend about a year ago to assist charities with raising funds online.
