I’m currently travelling through Australia, and was very kindly gifted a giving plate. Perhaps this is a common thing is Australia but I had never stumbled across one before.

What is a giving plate?


It is neatly summed up as a plate that has no owner, but is filled with food and re gifted. To continue the cycle you enjoy the food on the plate, replenish and re gift.

I love the idea of connecting with people through the sharing of food! So much so, that it inspired me to illustrate my own giving plates! (Want to see? Check out this link) A perfect project for January in the aftermath of all the Christmas indulgence : )

Ideally, I would love to generate a photo sharing community of giving plates from all over the globe!
If that is your thing, check out the instagram page or hashtag #givefoodgive
