Daniel Corry, of Leeston, QSM, for services to the community

Daniel Corry co-founded the Ellesmere Food Bank with his wife, Mrs Leonie Corry, and leads the charity. The Leeston-based Food Bank provides food to schools, services, and other food banks in Christchurch and occasionally the West Coast. Mr Corry has established a network of food suppliers and a system for keeping costs low. The Food Bank distributes around 3,500 parcels a year. Its output increased significantly in the years following the Christchurch earthquakes. More recently, food was provided to North Canterbury residents after the Kaikoura earthquake. Mr Corry also receives and distributes non-food donations and cuts firewood for low-income families
