Founder, Shaun Christie-David’s mum instilled this wisdom in him as a child and this spirit of equality, respect and care is the basis of the Plate it Forward movement.
Founded in 2020 by Shaun Christie-David, Plate it Forward’s original mission was to provide meals for community members who had been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, Plate it Forward has expanded to become a food-based collective and movement that creates equal opportunity around the table.
Through employment-based programs that utilise food as our love language, we build long-term communities that are able to change outcomes for their people. Skill and strength-based experiences, restaurants and employment opportunities allow Plate it Forward to employ, train and educate individuals who might otherwise be prevented from entering the workforce.
