Dress Smart and Everybody Eats

Last Christmas, Dress Smart Auckland partnered with local charity Everybody Eats to support their mission to help feed locals and visitors in our vibrant community.

During December 2023, for every $20 spent on a Dress Smart gift card, we committed to donating $2 to Everybody Eats.

Everybody Eats is committed to tackling food waste, food poverty and social isolation through community koha restaurants.

A $10 donation to Everybody Eats provides a dignified three-course meal to a Kiwi in need using food that would otherwise go to waste.

The restaurant welcomes an average of 500 diners every week.

As a result of our partnership, we are delighted to announce that with the support of our community and Dress Smart shoppers we were able to raise $5,000 to donate to Everybody Eats.

This money will go towards the running of this important initiative in our community including contributing to the cost of meals for those who need it most.

The work of Everybody Eats continues to be an important part of our community and there are many ways you can continue to help this initiative including dining at or donating to Everybody Eats, or by becoming a volunteer to help prepare and serve food every day.

From chopping vegetables to doing the dishes, chatting with guests and serving diners, there’s a role for everyone!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Dress Smart community for their contribution to Everybody Eats over the Christmas season.
