Celebrating 20 years of good food and good people.

We are celebrating 20 years of DineSmart bringing together restaurants and their diners to raise money for local homeless charities. This year, donations will help fund training and employment programs for vulnerable people, providing refugees & asylum seekers, at risk youth, long-term unemployed, and disadvantaged women the tools and confidence to be job-ready and have a life-changing opportunity.

All about DineSmart 2022

What is DineSmart?

DineSmart is a hospitality industry recognised and led event that takes place every December. Since 2003, thousands of loyal restaurant partners and their generous diners have teamed up to take action against homelessness. The event has helped distribute over $10MILLION, funding essential and innovative responses to homelessness across Australia.

How are the funds raised?

How are the funds raised? Funds are raised by dining at a DineSmart venue between December 1-31. When your bill comes, you’ll notice a $2 donation added to the total. You can choose to opt-out or to increase your donation – just let the staff know.

Alternatively, you can donate online an amount of your choice by clicking below.

Where do the funds go?

This year funds raised are going to be distributed across different grassroot organisations that are providing training and employment opportunities for disadvantaged youth, refugees, long term unemployed and people with disabilities. Your donations will help provide them the tools to be job-ready and lift themselves out of the cycles of poverty and homelessness. 

Who takes part in DineSmart?

Those that take part range from restaurants and eateries to dine-in and takeaway customers alike.

“From day one DineSmart has been built on the generosity of restaurateurs and diners and action by hospo staff.  To end homelessness, and provide care to people in crisis, takes a whole of community approach, and DineSmart is a simple idea that empowers us all to come together and chip in to fund some of the solutions.” –
