In a time of uncertainty for many, filling hungry tummies is more important than ever. Thanks to the generosity of Taupo Social Club and their charity partner Kura Kia, 56 people in the local community were able to go to bed full.

Putting the social care into social club, Taupo Social Club paid-it-forward 56 meals to Kura Kai to be given to young people and their whānau (extended family) who need extra nourishment and care. 

Kura Kai (meaning “food for schools”) was set up to help our rangatahi (young people) by purchasing chest freezers that are kept at partnering secondary schools in New Zealand and then stocked with frozen meals generously cooked and donated by volunteers. The schools then distribute the meals to members of the rangatahi in their school communities who have a need.


But Kura Kai cannot do the great work that it does for our young people without the generosity of businesses like the Taupo Social Club. 

Manager, Kirandeep, explained that his talented chef made fourteen huge trays of chicken lasagne, penne with meatballs and tomato sauce, penne with cheese sauce and penne bolognese. Delicious and filling meals that were very much appreciated by the kids and their whānau.

Want to be part of this generosity? Head to Taupon Social Club to enjoy the stunning views of Lake Taupo and the mountains of the central plateau while you’re dining, then add a little pay-it-forward on to your bill when you leave.
