Open Table shares free meals to those in need in neighbourhoods across Melbourne. We use 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 is now running FREE  workshops to help you reduce food waste at home. Held every month in North Fitzroy.

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