Looking for somewhere to spoil yourself and/or others? Why not try Double Teaspoons in the Papamoa Plaza Food Court at 7 Gravatt Road in Papamoa (that’s south of Mount Maunganui for those of you not from the Bay of Plenty!). Double Teaspoons “has your morning espresso, breakfast, lunch and sweet treat covered.” 

They also serve you with a smile! What’s more, they are often giving out or paying-it-forward to those in the community who need help.

 

One such organisation that has been a recipient of Double Teaspoons’ generosity is Kura Kai—Kura Kai has recently received 20 meals from Double Teaspoons. 

Kura Kai donates freezers to secondary schools throughout New Zealand and fills them with meals so that hungry or needy students and their families can have a delicious and nutritious meal. Kura Kai supports our rangatahi (young people) for two main reasons. Kura Kai wants them to stay in school “with a focused mind” thanks to healthy eating, and it also aims to encourage “manaakitanga” (care of others) in our rangatahi so that they, too, can seek out those who may need help in the form of meals from Kura Kai. Kura Kai asks young people to “look for whanau [family, especially extended family], kaumatua [elders] and tangata [people] that need help within their community and to use Kura Kai as an offering to help those they see in need.” This is a great example of paying-it-forward in many ways.

None of this would be possible without the generosity of double teaspoons' customers paying-it-forward on top of their breakfasts, lunches or coffee's OR without the amazing generosity of local land surveyors, S&L. S&L has joined many other generous 'corporate partners' on our platform who pay-it-forward to generous businesses like Double Teaspoons to enable them to meet more needs in our local community.

GoGenerosity also wants to meet needs in the community and encourages the pay-it-forward principle in its partner businesses and organisations to do this.  Thank you, Double Teaspoons! Thank you, Kura Kai! Thank you S&L! And thank you, too, to our rangatahi!
