Meat for our elderly

The 65+ proportion of our population is rapidly growing - 1 in 6 Kiwis fits that age group - but the assistance isn’t. That’s why groups like Age Concern are so incredibly important, to help those who have already spent so much of their lives supporting others.  

Age Concern is a not-for-profit organisation that works for the rights and well-being of the older members of our community. Volunteers come together to help in a variety of ways, like home visits, taxi services, and meat packs, which is where Bethlehem Butchery came in.


Generous local butchers, Bethlehem Butchery, recently paid-forward $440 worth of meat to Age Concern in Tauranga. This is provided to local Bay of Plenty elderly as meat packs, giving them a way to boost their meals.


This hugely generous pay-it-forward goes a long way in ensuring that our elderly are getting access to the nutrition they need even as the food costs rise. 


To help support Age Concern and those they look after, add a little extra to your bill next time you’re in seeing Ben and his friendly crew at Bethlehem Butchery (235 SH2 in Bethlehem). 


Or, support other charitable distributions like this one by paying-it-forward at any of our partners’ stores linked below.
