May is your opportunity to EAT GOOD. DO GOOD. FEEL GOOD.

Restaurants, cafes and bars across Melbourne are joining forces with their diners to raise money to support Sacred Heart Mission’s Meals Program, which provides hearty, free meals for up to 400 people every day of the year.



Dine with Heart Dinner

Join us on Tuesday 30 May for an evening you won't forget!

Imagine yourself on the stage of the Palais Theatre. Warm light and a sense of anticipation floods the stunning 90-year old auditorium and it’s yours to command...only it’s empty! Instead, all the action is happening around you, on stage and outside in the venue’s car park. You are part of a bespoke audience of 200, about to delight in a unique and memorable dining experience, catered by an ensemble of Melbourne’s leading chefs.

Chefs include Chris Watson (Cutler & Co / Marion), Jesse Gerner (Bomba/Anada), Emma D'Alessandro (Donovans), Adam D'Sylva (Tonka/Coda), Nicky Reimer (Bellota Wine Bar), Buddha Lo (Matteos), Brooke Payne (Epocha) and Jarrod Smith (Elyros)

All profits from this event will help to fund Sacred Heart Mission's Meals Program, helping to feed those in need

Ticket includes welcome canapes, 3 course sit-down dinner on the stage of the fabulous and newly renovated Palais Theatre

Enjoy beverages from our friends at the Mountain Goat Brewery, Pizzini Wines Prosecco , San Pellegrino Mineral water and Vinomofo.

It costs the Mission $4 to provide a person with a meal. When you think about it, for the cost of a coffee, you could help to feed someone in need.

Thanks to our wonderful participants, there is a myriad of ways to support our Meals Program during May.

Throughout the month we've got cocktail parties, dinners and bespoke desserts. There will be the opportunity to donate at the end of your meal, or purchase a meal, knowing that a portion of that money will be donated directly to the Mission.

Last year restaurants and cafes across Melbourne joined the Dine with Heart campaign and helped us raise $115K for our Meals Program throughout the month of May.  That amount covered the cost of 28,750 meals for people experiencing homelessness, disadvantage and social isolation.

Our goal is to feed even more people in 2017.

"It’s always a pleasure to support the community whenever we can, and even more so when we can express support in such a fun and creative way. We’re happy that it goes toward helping you get those meals out." - Johnny Iodice, The Vineyard
