Feel better soup

If you’re feeling sick and tired, or tired and sick, sometimes you just want a hug from mum or, if she’s too far away, maybe you want a kind angel to drop round a meal.


Chow Tory, (45 Tory Street in the Courtenay Place, Wellington) made this possible recently.

A fusion restaurant with everything from salads to dumplings to curries, they have something on the menu that’ll please everyone. They also have a huge heart for the community, which they demonstrate again and again through paying-forward meals to those in need.


Thanks to Chow and their generous customer they paid-forward 10 of their delicious meals to the Kiwi Community Assistance (KCA), also based in Wellington. KCA was set up solely to help others in and around the nation’s capital. They rescue surplus food and, along with donations from businesses like Chow, and redistribute this nourishment to those helping people in the community.


Tracy from KCA was super-grateful for Chow’s generosity and said, “Collection was passed on to Soup Kitchen Wellington to share with clients who are sick.”

We can’t all have a meal delivered to our door, and we can’t all have a hug from mum, but we can all help in the cycle of giving by adding a little extra (even loose change) when we’re at Chow, so that others in need can benefit from the Chow–KCA Wellington generosity.


If you’re not in Wellington, check out our other generous businesses to see where you can pay-it-forward.
