"It’s about supporting people who really need it and that explains itself. It’s easy to give money to something, or look at big causes in faraway countries, and that’s important, but it’s really important to look at what’s on your back doorstep and help the community”
Jesse Gerner, Dine with Heart Ambassador, Executive Chef and Owner Bomba, Añada, Park Street Dining and Nomada
This May, DO GOOD. EAT GOOD. FEEL GOOD and support those in our community experiencing homelessness, social isolation and disadvantage.

A simple meal is the first step in improving people’s lives and everyone is welcome at our table. For 35 years our Dining Hall has been, and remains, at our heart. Today it is one of the many ways we connect people who are the most vulnerable in our community to a range of services that offer them the opportunity and support to live stable and fulfilling lives.

But we need your help. This year we’re aiming to raise over $150,000 to give people in need the chance to access the vital support services we provide.  Your generosity helps us make a difference in the lives of people experiencing homelessness and disadvantage.

Helping someone in need to access a free and nutritious meal is easy and affordable. For as little as $4 you’re providing someone in need with a hot meal and connecting them to long term support and assistance.
