Soup Kitchen – Pour it forward by providing some hearty warm and nutritious meals to someone doing it rough right now.

Our model is a little different from most venues, with our 100% ‘not for profit’ business model redefining “pay it forward”, in order to support those less fortunate in our community. We operate a Soup Kitchen from our venue which delivers tens of thousands of meals directly out to those in the community who are struggling for their next meal, and among others we supply these meals to several fabulous charitable organisations, including Hutt St Centre, Baptist Care, Puddle Jumpers, Vinnies and the Salvos just to name a few.

Any donations directly help us to provide people in need with meals, as well as support our work in providing them with hospitality training opportunities, with a view to helping people find employment, across all aspects of Hospitality (think customer service/barista/food handling and food prep/cash handling etc).

If you are interested in volunteering and available any day Mon-Thurs, 9AM-12PM, please contact our fabulous Volunteer Coordinator on 0435 430 045 or email with any volunteer queries. You can click here to download a Volunteer Application Form.



And as we are a registered charity your donation is fully tax deductible.

You can make a donation via direct transfer to our bank account as follows:

Cafe Outside The Square Ltd

BSB: 633 000

ACC: 161 439 591


If you then just email your remittance to accounts@foodonthetable we will make it all happen and send you your invoice/tax receipt.

You can make a once off or ongoing monthly donation (via paypal) by clicking this button


Or you can pay via PayPal/credit card simply by visiting our GoFundMe page.

We’d love you to share this widely with others too please, so we can all do our little bit to help someone who needs it at the moment.


We hope you are all keeping well and taking good care of yourselves.

Lots of Love from the team at Food on the Table xx
