KidsCan is helping Kiwi kids living in hardship reach their full potential and create brighter
futures for themselves.

We provide Kiwi kids in need with food, clothing and health items at school, so they can get into the classroom in a position to learn. KidsCan does this because we believe that education equals opportunity, and all children, regardless of their social economic background should have an equal chance.

For just $15 a month, you can join the thousands of New Zealanders dedicated to changing a child’s life.

Distributing one million food items this term a tremendous task

“It’s a good day for it, surprise, surprise, it’s not raining for a change!”

As Aroha switches on the big overhead florescent lights you can see why, the warehouse is full with aisles of food products all neatly packed by type and pallets-upon-pallets stacked high above eye level.
