Cost of Living Burger
For a few reasons we have made the difficult decision not to take part in this year's Wellington on a Plate. We do love the wonderful celebration of burgers each August in Wellington though, and so we've decided to do something a bit different. We're introducing our "Cost of Living Burger" which will be available throughout August.
The burger is a beef patty with a Welsh Rarebit sauce served on a toasted brioche bun with fresh lettuce and red onion.
It will be priced at $9.76. This price is exactly how much it costs us to make it, with no profit. For those who are able, we are also suggesting a voluntary contribution on top of the price that will go to The Wellington City Mission. The Wellington City Mission works with the community in a number of ways, whether it be with support with food, housing, financial mentoring, access to social support and advocacy.
As a small, independent business we are very aware of the rising costs of living in NZ, and how many people are doing it tough. We're incredibly excited to produce a good quality burger, at a transparent, honest price, and to help raise awareness of the rising cost of just getting by,
We especially appreciate the voluntary contributions we will collect and hand over to our friends at The Wellington City Mission who do an amazing job at giving a helping hand to those who need it the most.
We have been overwhelmed by the response, aroha and support to our burger. For this reason, bookings are highly recommended - we have a wonderful but small number of colleagues who we need to look after. Head over to our booking page to secure your place, and our team will get back to you.
Veggie burger coming soon
