Providing ready-made, wholesome lunches direct to disadvantaged children at no cost.

It’s hard to believe, but there are many young Aussies who go to school each day without any lunch. And without food, concentration is compromised. This means learning is compromised, which means their future is compromised. Eat Up provides free wholesome lunches to disadvantaged primary school children in Victoria, who would otherwise go without.


2017 Pitch
Funds raised: $31,100

Eat Up pitched in at TFN Live in Melbourne on the 19 October and raised $31,100 to create a ‘start-up’ manual that will equip local country Victorians with a step-by-step guide to support hungry kids in their own hometowns. The development of this regional model will enable Eat Up to reach an additional 30 schools across five country-Victorian towns, and scale their operations with broader implications enabling national scale.
