About Us

How did it all start?

Dinner on the Table was founded in January 2014 by Rachel Golding. Knowing that she loved to cook, Rachel was asked by a friend if she would make some dinners she could put in the freezer to have on hand when the rigours of daily life didn’t leave time to cook dinner for her family.

Two chicken and leek pies were cooked and subsequently eaten, and a business idea began to germinate.

What's so good about it?

Dinner on the Table transforms daily lives... one dinner at a time.

Let's face it, women are juggling: work, life, children and family. We provide delicious, nutritious meals, just as if you’d made them yourself, for those days when there are just too many balls to keep in the air.  

We know that having your dinner sorted long before you want to eat it means that daily life is just that little bit richer.

I get the feeling there might be more to it...

Rachel (nee Mayes) is a former postdoctoral fellow, researching family and disability. She believes that, as well as making a huge difference in your daily life... together, we can transform the way our society cares for women made vulnerable by disability.  These women are doing the juggle too, often with fewer resources and greater pressures. Knowing that tonight’s dinner is done surely takes some of the pressure off.  Your order allows us to provide meals at no cost to women made vulnerable by disability and their families.

We can't wait to see the impact that this will ultimately have on their daily lives.

Yep, I'm in.  How can I get dinner on my table?

We send out a weekly “what’s for dinner next week” email.  To receive our weekly email, sign-up to our mailing list here. To see some of our previous menus, go to our Facebook page.  You can also see our current menu here.

Our meals are designed to feed your family – large or small, and most meals are offered in both sizes. A large size feeds 3-4 adults, while small sizes feed 1-2 adults.

Order by Monday midday each week for delivery the same week. Place your order by adding products to your cart from our Menu.

Hang on a minute, do you deliver to me?

We currently deliver to lots of suburbs across Sydney (see below for a complete list of postcodes) for a $10 flat fee, unless the order is more than $50, and then delivery is free.

We are also very happy to deliver to "hubs" where a group of customers (colleagues or neighbours) come together to reach the minimum order and have their orders delivered to the same address.  Orders will be packed separately so you don't have to do the dividing up yourselves.  To set up a new hub, please contact us.

Meals are delivered in styrofoam boxes with icepacks, and will sit happily on your doorstep for the day, if you would prefer to have your meals delivered to your home.
