A meal is just the beginning. 

$4 cook off - Dine with Heart @ Home

This year, Smith & Daughters co-owner and head chef, Shannon Martinez is our Dine with Heart Ambassador. 

"I'm running the $4 cook off. Making meals that cost no more than $4 per person. I'll then challenge my chef friends to make another $4 meal."

Shannon says that for just $4 you can eat healthy nutritious meals. Just like the meals that we serve in our Dining Hall, every day.

Dine with Heart brings people together, over food, in support of our Dining Hall and your fundraising provides food for the most vulnerable people in our community.

Dine with Heart @ Home now, or read more below, to see what else you can do this May to provide people, who visit our Dining Hall, with a nutritious meal...

Dine In or Dine Out. Dine With Heart in May to help raise funds for our Dining Hall.

Dine With Heart is a fun and highly sociable fundraising campaign you can share with friends, family and colleagues. It brings people together through their love of food.
Whether you dine out at a participating restaurant, dine in by inviting friends over, or have fun with your colleagues, every $4 you raise will provide a nutritious meal for someone need.

May is an opportunity for every Melbournian, through their love of food, to support those in need throughout our community.

By getting involved in Dine With you will be supporting Sacred Heart Mission's Dining Hall.

This year alone, we need to raise $730,000 to keep our Dining Hall open. This vital service serves up to provides 400 meals every day, 365 days a year, to people in need in our community who are experiencing social isolation and disadvantage.

A meal is just the beginning. Everyone is welcome at our table.

This year we are proud to announce Australian Venue Co. as our Dine With Heart Hospitality Partner.
