This year, they’ve gone one step further. A bunch of Sydney restaurants have jumped on board and they’ll be adding a single dollar to each bill, meaning you can dine at your fave restaurant (think Chin Chin, Hartsyard, Automata, No.1 Bent Street, Icebergs, Matteo, and Rocker) while providing two meals for people in need.
