Ferntree Gully
Community Meal Night

We run our Ferntree Gully Community Meal every Wednesday night, it is open to anyone who wants to makes some new friends and enjoy a free, delicious home cooked meal in a safe and supportive environment.

Every Wednesday Night
Ferntree Gully Guide Hall,
Underwood Road, Ferntree Gully

6:30pm: Dinner is served
4:30pm: Cuppa and chat

Since 2007, Ferntree Gully Community Meal Nights have been held every Wednesday night (except in January) at the Ferntree Gully Guide Hall, Underwood Rd in Ferntree Gully, right opposite the Ferntree Gully railway station.

We usually have around 60 people coming along and sharing a meal, a laugh, and a chat together, in a safe and positive atmosphere. Our doors open at 4.30pm, come in for a cuppa, a snack and and chat. Our home cooked main meals are served at 6.30pm followed by a delicious dessert.

Our meals are free: not because they cost us nothing, but because your gift is simply coming. For those who would like to contribute we do have a donation tin available on the night, and many people get involved in setup and clean up afterwards.

No need to book, just turn up. We would love to see you there.

Our nights rely heavily on a team of committed volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, please go to our volunteers section.

What we provide

A free meal & desert

A home cooked delicious main meal is served along with a fresh dessert. We believe that meals should be healthy and nutritious and to that end we cook our meals on the night using fresh ingredients.

Food to take home

Often we have meals from the night to “take away” to be reheated afterwards. We also have fresh fruit, vegetables, bread and eggs available to give away at the end of the night, courtesy of our friends at Second Bite.

A friendly envornment

We aim to provide a safe and positive welcoming environment for people to enjoy their meal. We believe everyone should be treated with dignity and respect. To this end we will not tolerate any acts of violence or verbal abuse directed towards anyone. and perpetrators will be asked to leave.

Our nights rely heavily on a team of committed
volunteers and support from local partners.
