To date we've given back $6 million to over 30,000 local community groups, organisations and projects.

Celebrating 10 years of Local Matters

We've got a lot of thanks to pay. About 6 million dollars’ worth to be exact. Because you believed in a little idea we had way back in 2011, Local Matters lives on and it lives strong.

Your vote of support goes far

Your votes give a hand up to local community groups so they can keep doing what they love, 
and that’s what really counts.

How it works

You probably know the drill. Order up and you'll get a token to vote in-restaurant or online. Get to know the local groups in your community and use your token to vote for their cause.

A little idea that grew big

Before we turned Local Matters into a “thing” we were already jumping in to run burger BBQ’s at primary school fetes, sponsoring footy clubs and handing over vouchers for school raffles. At the time we just wanted a way to give back more to our community supporters and to get our favourite guests (you) in on it too.

We've given back over $6 MILLION to local communities

$120,000 to help tackle homelessness

$800,000 to health and disability groups

$650,000 to educational services

And we've supported over 30,000 community groups, organisations & projects

9,600+ local sports groups

4,100+ youth organisations

4,400+ educational services
