Brown Paper Bag Appeal

The Christchurch City Mission Foodbank needs your support.

Together, we can help those most in need, when they need it most.

We’re asking so no-one else will have to.

Careforce funds provide the basics such as food, clothing, shelter and comfort, those things most of us take for granted.

New campaign says Christchurch is 'the best place in the world to be a Kiwi'

"The city doesn't just belong to those who can afford it. It belongs to everyone."

Christchurch's "Goldilocks" balance between size, affordability and outdoor opportunities makes it the best place to a Kiwi, new research says. Consultancy Interbrand carried out extensive interviews with 50 local business people, politicians, community leaders, and residents about how they saw Christchurch.

City Missioner Michael Gorman, who appears in Young's video, said residents should congratulate themselves on how far the city had come since the earthquakes.
