Let’s Break it Down
About the Fund
Sustainable Table has granted over $1.9 million to 89 projects regenerating food and farming across Australia. Learn more about the projects we've funded below.
We are also piloting new ways of funding and investment that centre the needs of the change makers on the ground. Explore our guide to Regenerating Investment in Food and Farming.
Please note that we are not accepting applications for grants/funding at this time.

How do I get funded?
We are not accepting applications for grants/funding at this time.
Sustainable Table has transitioned to a discretionary model of funding.
We encourage those organisations who would like to be considered to apply to our Regenerative Food and Farming Map. Our team is using this map as a tool to understand the needs of the industry and direct resources accordingly.
Please note that successfully being added to the map does not guarantee funding.
Eight principles underpin our work at Sustainable Table. Your project must align with one or more of our principles.
Sustainable Table's Impact Areas are our way of prioritising change. For your project to qualify for support and funding, it must fulfil one (or more) Impact Area.
- Your organisation or business needs to have successfully applied and been added to our Regenerative Food and Farming Map. Please note that this does not guarantee you will receive funding.
- Your project needs to highlight how it will achieve systems change rather than band-aid solutions.
- Not-for-profits, charities, community groups, or collaborations with the private sector (DGR status is not mandatory), businesses and social enterprises are all welcome to apply, provided they can illustrate high-impact potential.
- Projects must be intended for delivery within Australia.
The following projects are ineligible:
- Projects that perpetuate silos, lock up knowledge or are solely for private benefit.
- Projects that are party-political.
- Endowment funds.
- Projects that are not located in Australia.
- Projects that perpetuate racism and harm.
- Projects that support industrial systems e.g. fast fashion, ultra-processed foods, synthetic inputs.
We recognise that these areas are important but currently, we don’t have the resources to support them:
- Investigative/initial scoping projects (i.e. projects need to be beyond the initial idea stage and have the core relationships and components in place)
- Predominantly food relief focused applications
- Individual disaster/climate relief applications
- Advocacy campaigns
