Countdown is partnering with the Salvation Army and developer Lucid in New Zealand's first online foodbank project trial

In a first for New Zealand, The Salvation Army, Lucid, and Countdown have teamed up to create a brand new donation platform that allows donors to select much-needed food items and make a donation to cover the purchase so they can be delivered to a local Salvation Army foodbank to include in their food parcels.

The Foodbank Project is a not-for-profit, self-sustaining online grocery donation platform that makes it easy for anyone to donate online to help provide food to Kiwis in need.
