Providing the essentials, so Kiwi kids can learn.

KidsCan believes that education is a child’s ticket out of poverty, and gives them the opportunity for a better future. But kids can’t learn when they are cold, wet and hungry.  


So we partner with schools and early childhood centres across New Zealand to give the 1 in 6 Kiwi kids affected by poverty the essentials: food, clothing and health products.


We provide nutritious breakfast, snack and lunch foods to 49,000 hungry school kids every day.


We keep school children warm and dry with a fleece-lined jacket and sturdy shoes and socks.


We provide basic health items education to school kids.

Early Childhood.

We give preschoolers a jacket, shoes and socks, health products and daily healthy meals.
