They say there is no such thing as a free lunch, but Otamatea Community Services will be offering just that for Mangawhai residents from April onwards.
A new monthly senior and community lunch will be held in the Mangawhai Community Hall, in Fagan Place, starting on Thursday, April 8, at 12.30pm. The free meal initiative is being catered by Kaipara-based A to Z Catering and is an extension of a similar event already being run in Maungaturoto.
Otamatea Community Services spokesperson Gail Barnett says the new Mangawhai lunch will be open to anyone, though registration a week in advance is essential.
“Our lunches in Maungaturoto have been a special part of the community for over 10 years, so we thought we would bring it to magical Mangawhai for more people to enjoy,” she says.
