You've probably heard of The Biggest Morning Tea — well, now there's an initiative for those who fancy themselves as more of a dinner diner.
The Longest Table, founded in 2012, is an event held at dinner tables across the country on the 18th of June 2016.
Dates are flexible, however, and any event can be hosted until the end of July and still count towards the charity drive.
The charity event supports cancer research through The Hospital Research Foundation, Australian Breast Cancer Research and Australian Prostate Cancer.
An Ambassador for The Longest Table is My Kitchen Rules winner, Bree May.
“You will be supporting researchers who are finding better treatments and ultimately a cure for breast, prostate, bowel and oesophageal cancers, and many more." Bree said.
“My cousin Paul, and my husband’s mum both sadly died of cancer. My mum was diagnosed with cancer about 10 years ago. Thankfully they found it early through a routine mammogram and she is still with us today,” she said.
“By getting involved in The Longest Table and using my love of cooking, I feel like I can make a difference – and you can too.”
Guests can either donate on The Longest Table website or donate directly to their hosts.
“Winter is a perfect time to have your friends over and enjoy a meal in the comfort of your own home,” Bree said. “The food can be as simple or as fancy as you like.”
“So what are you waiting for? Pull out a recipe book, head to the shops, put on your apron, invite your friends and together let’s #forkcancer.”
A cure could be at the end of your table. Visit their website to register your dinner and donate to #forkcancer.
