Many more distribution centres are being set up across South Christchurch to meet growing public demand.
To make sure everything runs smoothly, a free training booklet has been published by Addington Action and has been distributed to all volunteers.
This booklet will be reissued with revisions in September and reissued to all volunteers.

This week, Comcare in Addington, St James Presbyterian Church and St Nicholas Anglican Church have also agreed to host distribution centres.
This makes a total of 11 distribution centres now operating, 8 waiting to hold meetings in approved venues to set up committees to be able to start operating, and a further 2 currently deciding whether to provide a venue. Another 9 are being approached about providing a venue.
A meeting to discuss venue availability is being held tonight at St Marys in Heathcote Valley. Once venue availability has been confirmed a public meeting will called at each venue to establish a committee to run a distribution centre.
