We are Lentil as Anything.

We are a chain of not-for-profit vegan restaurants and a grocery store where customers contribute what they feel their meal and experience is worth, according to their own financial ability.

The Lentil as Anything mission is to provide food without borders, without borders of race or socioeconomic status. Lentil As Anything also works to remove the borders in society through providing volunteer training and employment opportunities for people from diverse backgrounds including those who have been marginalised.
