We are busy collecting restaurant’s donations and look forward to distributing the funds with our community partners, who are supporting thousands of Australians in need. We’ll share the impact of DineSmart 2021 with everyone soon!
As we all know, the hospitality industry has taken hit after hit since the pandemic began. However, 67 venues stepped up in December to raise vital funds for local homeless organisations. They have done an amazing job at a difficult time. To help scale our community grants to help more people experiencing homelessness, we are asking our supporters to help match the funds raised by our restaurant partners. If you want to partner with a local restaurant and match their donations we’d love to hear from you.

What your support means
We fund social enterprises, where people at risk of homelessness are being trained and gain life skills, while cooking meals for others in their local community.
We help provide material aid for women and children’s refuges, including bedding, hygiene products, children’s toys & clothes and more.
We fund youth programs to provide legal advice, job training, or mental health support for young people experiencing hardship.
"For the past 4 years it has been a privilege to be part of the DineSmart program, helping raise much needed funds that will help the ones in need. The opportunity that DineSmart provides to all of us to help raise awareness and work with our communities to help others has proved to be more than successful by obtaining the highest percentage of engagement and donations.”
“We think it is important for business to give back – and DineSmart is such a simple way to effect meaningful change in people’s lives. ”
“We love being part of DineSmart. It's a great concept that assists small, grassroots charities. It's simple to administer and all our customers are very supportive as it gives them an opportunity to contribute, that they may not of otherwise had.”
“DineSmart is an opportunity to raise funds and awareness. When most of the press around homelessness is focused on the lack of funding, while people are really suffering - it is great to be able to positively engage - and take practical action.”
“Through DineSmart we have helped to fund some fantastic local organisations that are literally a stone's throw from our restaurant. It's really great to be able to tell our customers exactly where the money goes, that it benfits local people.”
“DineSmart is a fantastic initiative that Broadsheet has been proudly supporting for over 10 years. I encourage all restaurants to jump on board, and inspire your diners to help end homelessness.”
