Who is Lentil as Anything?
As you probably know, Lentil as Anything is a unique not for profit community organisation with four vegan/vegetarian restaurants in Australia. Bringing people together around a meal is a philosophy and the pay-as-you-feel concept brings communities together. It is up to the customer to decide what they want to pay for their dining experience. The financial model is centered on the values of trust, generosity, openness and respect of the human kind that gives people the opportunity to eat out and be social regardless of their financial situation.
Lentil as Anything philosophy has been working successfully for over 17 years now, with three restaurants in Abbotsford Convent, St Kilda and Thornbury, and also in Newtown in Sydney, with a growing involvement in education and ongoing community projects.
Lentil as Anything has been for 17 years an entity who truly value equality and care for people. We understand and promote multiculturalism, encourage people to become citizen of the world by getting involved in community based projects and initiatives.
