We need your help to keep doing what we love to do... save food from being wasted and sharing it with you!

Open Table is passionate about creating a fair food future for all, but we can't do it without your help. In order for us to continue to grow in your neighbourhood, we need your vote in the Victorian Government's 'Pick My Project' initiative to secure funding for our programs.

This is your chance to be part of creating a community where food is free and fair for all. You can vote for up to three projects below, so long as you live within 5kms of the project. Please vote for our projects in your area below:


Open Table Community Food Hub in Fitzroy
We'll create a Food Hub, including a Community Fridge and regular Community Lunches. A place where there's always a meal in the fridge or on the table, no food goes to waste, or a story to be shared


Open Table Community Connection in Glenroy and Fawkner 
We'll turn our monthly lunches into weekly free open-invite lunch, all made from surplus food in a welcoming environment where community members are able to sit and meet their neighbours, talk and share their stories. 


Celebration of Community and Culture in Fitzroy North
To celebrate 5 years of Open Table, we'll be holding a festive celebration, free and open to everyone, food served by us, with local musicians and speakers celebrating our diverse and thriving community.
