Awarding winning community restaurant Everybody Eats launches at Tātou: Feeding TāmakiTogether

You may already have heard about Everybody Eats, the award-winning community restaurant with big ambitions: reducing food waste, food poverty, and social isolation. You may have even visited or volunteered at one of the thriving restaurants in Onehunga or Wellington. And now, there’s an exciting new opportunity to be part of the Everybody Eats experience by joining them at the brand new community restaurant at Tātou, 133 Line Road, Tamaki, from Sunday 27th August, 6pm-8pm.

Tātou is a new, unique shared-space owned by Tāmaki Regeneration and home to three organisations: Everybody Eats, Soulfood & Friends and Line Road Cafe. Putting food at the heart of the community, they are brought together by their shared values.

General Manager, Amy Tew says “At Everybody Eats, we believe that everyone deserves to spend an evening with others, eating delicious chef-prepared food served by friendly faces. We also know that the cost of this can be prohibitive for many people. However, our unique charitable model brings this wonderful experience of sharing quality kai together into everyone’s reach” By transforming perfectly good surplus food into restaurant quality meals, Everybody Eats is able to offer a different three course set-menu every night, served with aroha at a cost that you, the diner, can decide.

“If you loved the food and can afford to pay, then thank you – your koha allows us to continue providing these meals. If you can’t afford to pay, then know you are always welcome and are helping to reduce food waste and build community spirit.” says Amy.

The concept is simple; everyone is welcome at Everybody Eats.

Everybody Eats at Tātou will be open 6pm-8pm on Sunday 27th, Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th August, then Sunday-Thursday 6pm-8pm from 3rd September.

Amy adds, “We are super excited to be opening at Tātou and seeing our whānau grow. We would love you to join us – whether that is as a volunteer or a diner, or both.”

● A superb three-course meal created by a top chef
