The Lovely Grub Connection

Lovely Grub has been with our family of Southern R P C rowers right from the beginning. It started with the Otago Championships, Canterbury Championships, South Island Championships and culminating with the National Championships for 12 days. It has been a real blast to work with these energetic high performing athletes. We have worked closely with the management and athletes to produce menus which fuel these winners. 

Maadi CupLovely Grub provided all of the athletes' food requirements including special diets, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Some of their favourites being Gavin's savoury scones and Judy's Broccoli Salad. During the nationals we also catered for evening meals for Tauranga Rowing Club and the Central R P C at different venues


Flexibility was of the utmost importance as meal times would change dependent on the weather at the lake, coaching requirements and racing schedules. For the final meal our rowers hosted their families, supporters and corporate guests to a celebration dinner on location at lake Ruataniwha .
