Event description

Throughout Don Dunstan’s career he always thought food brought people together. He even created his own cookbook while in office!

The Foundation have assembled a who’s who of South Australia’s best chefs to create a new cookbook, themed around Don’s love of food and social justice.

To celebrate the Foundation’s 20th anniversary, and the amazing work we have done across those years, we are temporarily reviving ‘Don’s Table’ in his heartland of Norwood on 11th October 2019.

You’ll see a sneak peak of the cookbook (pre-sales available), forage at our masterpiece grazing table, aptly named ‘Don’s Table’, and get involved in fundraising through our project pitches, wine wall and silent auction. Plus we will have live acoustic music and plenty of drinks.

Can you help us hit these aims?

  • Lock in a presale copy of our new Don Dunstan/social justice inspired cookbook.
  • Celebrate what the Foundation has achieved in the last 20 years and commemorate the anniversary of Don Dunstan’s passing.
  • Fundraise with us to boost the project work of the Foundation and carry on Don’s social justice legacy.

We are a registered charity and focus on social justice issues through public events, collaborative projects and research.

Helping improve individual and community mental health primarily though a range of events and commissioning research. Analysing the opportunities and challenges of migration by supporting a Migration and Population Growth Network with the Committee for Adelaide and a Migration and Refugee Research Network (MARRNet) with a broad range of organisations. Supporting Aboriginal economic empowerment by working with the Leaders Institute of South Australia and reconciliation though our annual Lowitja O’Donoghue Oration. Growing the purpose economy in South Australia through the Thinkers in Residence Program that brings experts from around the world to help us develop a more purposeful economy that is able to achieve the highest levels of social, cultural and environmental impact.
