“Pay what you can” day from V on Wheels

Right from the start V on Wheels, a Tauranga vegan delivery business, was about sharing awareness and knowledge that we can eat delicious meals without harming ourselves or others. St. Valentine’s Day is THE perfect occasion for SHARING, so Mila Arena, the founder of the company, decided to share her meals with those who can’t afford the full price. How amazing is that!

On 14 February you can order one freshly made meal for any price you’re ready to pay. Just browse their website vonwheels.com and send an email with your selection to vonwheelsnz@gmail.com.

The delivery cost is not included in this special offer, but you can order a pick up!
