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

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. We are encouraged by your generosity - God bless you.
Thank you for your generosity. Your gift will help us serve others. God bless you.
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.
Thank you for your donation. We have 190-ish people coming from our first dinner at 19 July 2019 ;) Blessings
