Southern Lens - Baskets of Blessing

Mar 13, 2020

It does not matter if you are rich or poor, young or old - Baskets of Blessing in Queenstown will deliver food, flowers and gifts whenever residents are going through a tough time. Nominations are confidential from friends and neighbours - and the system has grown from being tiny to an almost industrial scale.

What's even better, is that they use unsold food from supermarkets to make hundreds of free meals for their baskets. It's entirely run by volunteers - and is a shining example of community spirit and love.

Reach out to them at if you'd like to help out or you know someone who needs support.
