Bringing people together, one meal at a time.

The Plate with a Mate campaign encourages all Tasmanians to connect with mates and consider a healthier meal alternative.  

Join us in celebrating fresh, seasonal Tasmanian food by hosting a  Plate With A Mate Event —invite your workplace, school, sporting club or local community groups to join the campaign and share a healthy plate of locally-made food with your mates.

Campaign Objectives

  • Support Tasmanians to Eat Well
  • Champion local food—hospitality and producer businesses 
  • Create resources that help people enjoy healthier, delicious local food 
  • Promote the impact food has on wellbeing via fostering social connection 

Invite your mate to share a plate.

When we eat with others, we have a natural tendency to use their behaviour as a guide—when we eat with a friend who’s chosen a meal with plenty of fruit and veg we are more likely to Eat Well too.Invite your mate to share a plate.
