Donate and paint

Help a Kiwi family in need and receive a free Resene Testpot to say thank you. Resene and Salvation Army have partnered up once again for the Hunger for Colour campaign, which saw more than 24,000 cans of food being swapped for Resene Testpots last year. 

This February, bring a can of food to any Resene ColorShop (NZ) and you will receive a free Resene Testpot (55-80ml). The cans are then donated to the local Salvation Army food banks and other community food banks.

All cans of food in good condition (and suitable for humans to eat) will be gratefully received. The Salvation Army has a recommended list of items, which includes corn, baked beans, spaghetti, stews, soups and fruit. Visit for more food suggestions.

Pet food is also acceptable and will be donated to the SPCA and local community animal shelters.

The Hunger for Colour programme runs 1-29 February or while testpot stocks last. A limit of eight free 55-80ml testpots is available per household. Each can of food swapped must be 200gm/ml or greater.

Visit for your local Resene ColorShop.
