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

Dine With Heart in May 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 to support those in need in our community.

Whether you dine in by inviting friends over, dine out at a participating restaurant, or have fun at work with your colleagues, every $4 you raise will provide a nutritious meal for someone need.

By getting involved in Dine with Heart 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 provides up to 400 meals every day, 365 days a year, to people who are experiencing social isolation and disadvantage.

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

Shannon has been cooking in kitchens for the past 22 years in Melbourne and is co-owner of Australia's two most prolific plant-based businesses, Smith & Daughters and Smith & Deli.

For Dine with Heart 2019, Shannon is running a $4 cook off. “I’m making meals that cost no more than $4 per person,” she explains. “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.

Learn more about the challenge and find out how you can participate by creating your own $4 meal through Dine with Heart @ Home.
