Kids Eat Free is back this Saturday at the Tauranga Domain, where the Bay of Plenty Steamers will be taking on Waikato in their final Mitre 10 Cup round robin match.

The first 250 kids to the Mount Maunganui New World Whanau Zone will snap up the Kids Eat Free offer thanks to Mount Maunganui New World.

Marketing Manager Amanda Thompson says their focus this year has been to provide a fun, family friendly atmosphere at the Mitre 10 Cup home games.

“With the additional support from New World Mount Maunganui we can add to the festivities and together provide a free feed for 250 kids.

“Kids eat free was a huge success at our first Mitre 10 Cup home game at Rotorua International Stadium when the Steamers played Hawke's Bay. With it being the Barrett Homes Charity Day, a great day out for the whanau it is a no brainer for us to be able to offer the opportunity for kids to eat free again.”

To take up the kids eat free offer, kids are required to redeem their ticket at the New World Mount Maunganui Whanau Zone, where they will receive a Kids Eat Free BBQ meal.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
