Providing refuge through meals

Home is where the heart is and where everyone should feel safe and protected. But this isn’t so for everyone.


For some, home can be a place of violence and fear. Helping local women and their children in this situation is Tauranga Women’s Refuge. It’s just that – a place of refuge for women and their children who feel threatened and afraid in their own homes. The team also offers support services to those in their care to help them build a better future.


But Tauranga Women’s Refuge can’t do all this work on their own. They need help, which is where Miss Gee’s Bar and Eatery comes in. 

Miss Gee’s paid-it-forward 20 meals to Tauranga Women’s Refuge so that the women in their care didn’t have to worry about cooking when they were already coping with stress and the effects of family violence. Plus having a restaurant-quality dinner would have helped give them a little boost, because it feels special. Thanks Miss Gee’s – from all of us.

If you want to help, whilst also having fun, think Miss Gee’s next time you’re organising a night out. They’re based on The Strand in Tauranga and are known for their delicious food and cocktails. An easy choice to visit and add on a small pay-it-forward amount!
