Open Table is based on two key ideas - providing free meals to those in need and reducing food waste. We take surplus food that would otherwise be thrown away, and turn it into nutritious meals to share with the community, in order to reduce food insecurity and food waste.

Did you know that Nationally 40% of fruits and vegetables grown in Australia never make it to the produce shelf, on top of that, one fifth of the food we are buying is being thrown in the bin.


Lunches occur weekly in one of our Brunswick, Fawkner, Coburg, Carlton or Fitzroy locations.

Open Table lunches conjure up great smells, colourful sights and heart warming conversations.
