How special was Christmas? Treats, fun, family time and a whole lot of overly full bellies -  we’re still recovering from that last bit ourselves! However for some of our locals the full bellies were not a given. A worry that can take the magic out of the season, especially for parents with young children.

Thankfully the generosity of Best Bakehouse came to the rescue, paying-forward $400 worth of festive treats. They provided 80 (extremely cute) gingerbread Christmas Tree cookies to their charity partner The Tauranga Community Food Bank. These were popped into food boxes for families with children, making them feel special and giving them a moment of Chrisrtmas magic that they may not have had otherwise.

The Tauranga Community Food Bank isn’t government funded, which means it relies completely upon the generosity of the local community and generous businesses like Best Bakehouse to feed those in need.

If you want to support their mahi, while enjoying treats yourself, head to Best Bakehouse in Papamoa and try their made from scratch baked goods and delicious coffee. Any amount you pay-forward, whether it's big or small, will go towards more baked goods for locals in need. 

If you’re not in the beautiful Bay of Plenty, head to our marketplace to see where else you can pay-it-forward while you’re out and about.
