DineSmart 2020 is supporting vulnerable Australians in a food crisis. Funds raised will provide hearty, nutritious meals for people at risk or experiencing homelessness.

We partner with restaurants and local homelessness charities

Diners make a $2 donation at partner restaurants for dine-in or takeaway

Money raised will provide meals for vulnerable people who may otherwise not have eaten

"To be able to show where the money goes is a way to help people believe in it. The staff got behind it so much. It’s a really nice way to engage with your guests and your staff, and a way to refocus on how lucky we are to be working in this job.”

“We think it is important for business to give back – and DineSmart is such a simple way to effect meaningful change in people’s lives. ”

“We love being part of DineSmart. It's a great concept that assists small, grassroots charities. 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.”

“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.”
