Pasta Cafe

Organisation page created in the Community category

In the middle of a Queenstown winter, on six successive Friday evenings, we supply a free meal, companionship, and conversation

  Otago Religion

Our team cooks and serves up to 400 meals each evening. Each meal is rounded off with some home baking, cold drinks, tea or coffee, and on occasion: ice-cream!

Another group of volunteers welcome people and move among them to talk and chat while in a back room another group wash dishes and tidy up.

Over the past years we have served over 25,000 meals. Letters, cards and other messages give us the knowledge that what we are doing is important and is appreciated by the recipients, and in some cases their overseas families. Living costs in this community are high and this is one way we can help especially in the cold of winter.

More about us

The Wakatipu Presbyterian Church is long established in Queenstown, Frankton, and Arrowtown. We serve our own community and overseas in partnership with local organisations.

Thank you very much - your generosity is appreciated. Unfortunately because of Level 2 restrictions, we have had to close Pasta Cafe for now - but hopefully, we can return soon for at least one more night.

Thank you for your generosity to Pasta Cafe and the community. Last night we opened the doors for the first night this season and served all who came. It was a delight made possible by the generosity of you and others with big hearts. Thank you.
