“We love being part of DineSmart. It's a great concept that assists the small, 'grassroots' programs that tackle important social issues. It's simple to administer and all our customers are very supportive as it gives them an opportunity to contribute, that they may not of otherwise had.”
“We're based in the heart of the Melbourne CBD, and we have seen a real rise in the number of people sleeping rough right on our doorstep. It is easy to feel powerless, but our work with StreetSmart is such an important and tangible way to make a difference.”
“We are long-term supporters of StreetSmart and the DineSmart campaign. We get approached to participate in lots of charity work, but for our team, the work StreetSmart does with local homelessness services to address real gaps in funding is what sets it apart.”
“DineSmart is an opportunity to raise funds and awareness. When most of the press around homelessness is focused on the lack of funding, while people are really suffering - it is great to be able to positively engage - and take practical action.”
DineSmart unites restaurants and their diners to help people in their local community. From Nov – Dec participating restaurants ask diners to add a $1 per person donation to their bill.
