DineSmart unites restaurants and their diners to help people in their local community.  For the six weeks in the lead-up to Christmas and New Year, participating DineSmart restaurants ask each table to add a small $2 donation to their bill.

100% of all donations collected through restaurants are distributed locally to help people who are homeless or at risk.

DineSmart 2015 runs 9th Nov – 31st Dec 2015

Become a Restaurant Partner

DineSmart is a simple idea that fits in with a restaurant’s day to day operations. Join industry leaders and other great community minded restaurants and connect with your diners and staff to make a difference in your community.


Dine Out Help Out

We ask diners to make a special effort to dine at participating restaurants and leave a donation. Check out the Google Map for where to ‘Dine Out Help Out’. While you are there encourage your fellow diners to dig deep and leave your donation on your bill.


100% donations stay local

StreetSmart operational expenses are funded through sponsorship and private donors allowing us to guarantee to the community that 100% of your donations are distributed directly to charity recipients, in the area where the funds are raised.

"During the Christmas period, it's easy to get caught up in the hubbub, especially in hospitality. StreetSmart is not only an opportunity to raise money for an important cause, it also serves as a timely reminder to everyone we touch about the true meaning of the season."

− Gavin Van Staden, Red Spice Road

"We’ve been supporting StreetSmart for 12 years at all my restaurants. I’m proud to see the organisation make its 1000th community grant. We are so happy to be involved in such great projects and to be aligned with the great team at StreetSmart. It is our privilege to be able to be a small part of this work."

− Simon Denton, Kappo and Izakaya Den

"I would sincerely encourage other restaurants to get involved – it doesn’t take much to get started, and the money you raise can really help turn peoples’ lives around. I have had the chance to meet some of the people and organisations that benefit from the money I have helped raise. To know where the money goes is a huge factor for me."

− Adam Cash, Union Dining

"We are proud to be part of such a wonderful organisation and to know that it really does make a difference is heart warming. So often we give something but never know where the dollar went - I love what StreetSmart does."

− Monica Fuller, Sails on the Bay

DineSmart Restaurants and Customers Change Lives

andrew at pizza doh Andrew Grinter owns Pizza D’oh, Blairgowrie, VIC – a great example of how a restaurant can impact their local community through DineSmart. Since 2007 Andrew, his staff and generous customers have raised a total of $26,632 – an AMAZING effort. They have funded several important local projects including The Southern Peninsula Community Support & Information Centre’s Emergency Relief Fund. They have helped many people through their involvement including Susan and her 3 kids who were recently found to be sleeping in their car in Rosebud after escaping family violence and having nowhere to go. They have now been helped through accessing the Emergency Fund, to enable them to be housed in a caravan while waiting for transitional housing. The kids have settled into a new school and life is starting to look more hopeful.

FAQ – Why isn’t my DineSmart donation tax deductible?

We set up StreetSmart to help fund smaller organisations, start ups and social enterprises.  Some of these organisations don’t have Tax Deductible Status, meaning we wouldn’t be able to fund them if we offered our donors tax deductibility.  Restaurants would also have to issue StreetSmart receipts for every donation – something that would be impossible to implement. So we decided to set up StreetSmart as a Public Company Limited by Guarantee, with Charitable Status, and not offer a tax receipt for the $2 DineSmart donations.  Because of this we are a unique funder of smaller organisations.  We have since set up an Ancillary Fund that online donations support, thereby offering those supporters a tax receipt.   If you have any further questions about this please call Adam Robinson CEO on 04 88 33 64 19.
