Half a million loaves of bread for Kiwis in need
Food company Goodman Fielder this week delivered its 500,000th loaf of bread to Salvation Army food banks – enough bread to stretch from Wellington to Bulls if laid end-to-end.
The Goodman Fielder Cares Trust, backed by Goodman Fielder and its staff, has been providing bread baked specifically for 10 Army food banks in Wellington, Motueka, Christchurch, Dunedin, Whangarei, Auckland and Hamilton for more than six years.
