La Trobe University's Nutrition and Dietetics Student Association (NDSA) will be hosting our first dinner of 2016 at Lentil as Anything, Thornbury on Tuesday 3rd May at 7pm!

It will be a great time to see your friends outside of uni, enjoy delicious food and meet other like-minded students. If you feel like you might not know anyone, please feel free to bring along a friend and/or partner. It will be a great night with good food and awesome company so you won't want to miss it!

Book your tickets here: https://trybooking.com/196666
Please bring a copy of your ticket to the dinner.

As Lentil As Anything has a "pay as you feel" philosophy, the booking cost of $15.00 will cover the expenses of the restaurant for your meal. After your meal, should you feel that you want to contribute more than $15.00, just pop some extra cash into one of the restaurant's "magic boxes" (they also have Eftpos available). Our themes for the night will be the importance of good food, good company, generosity and respect.


A little more about the restaurant (extracted from their website http://lentilasanything.com/about/):

"Our Restaurant : How it works
Come to one of our restaurants for lunch or dinner or even breakfast at Abbotsford convent and in St Kilda
Choose what you’d like to eat
Enjoy a delicious meal, have a chat, listen to some music in a warm community space
Reflect on your feeling and decide how much you want and can contribute to this unique experience, and put some money in one of our magic boxes in the restaurant (EFTPOS also available at all our restaurants).
Be part of a unique financial model that is centred on the values of trust, generosity and respect that gives people the opportunity to eat out and be social regardless of their financial situation. Why do we do this? Because Everyone has a right to feel valued and respected, money should help bring people together not divide us.
