Greater Dandenong City Council is encouraging diners to celebrate a world of food and culture by dining out and supporting the recovery of the local food and entertainment sector.

The Victorian Government this week announced the $30 million Victorian Dining Program, offering customers the opportunity to claim back 25 per cent of their dining bill.

To lodge a claim customers must:

•    Dine between Monday and Thursday
•    Dine in an eligible restaurant, café or bar
•    Spend $40 or more in one transaction

Customers can claim by uploading a receipt that meets a certain set of criteria, and approved rebates will be credited back to their nominated bank account within five days.

The Victorian Dining Program will run alongside the Victorian Entertainment Program, which offers 25 per cent back on entertainment purchases including cinema tickets, theatre productions and live music for any day of the week.

Individuals can claim up to $125 in combined rebates across the two programs. Rebates are on a first come, first served basis until all funds are gone.

Greater Dandenong City Council Mayor, Cr Jim Memeti called on residents to support local businesses recovery.

“Why not visit one of Greater Dandenong’s cultural precincts or catch a show at the Drum Theatre and help support our local businesses get back on their feet,” the Mayor said.

“The City of Greater Dandenong offers an authentic cultural experience without your passport. We encourage people to taste the delights of Greater Dandenong and discover the vibrancy and diversity in our local dining experience.”
