Pizza giant Domino’s has launched a new charity, Minds & Meals, to raise funds for youth mental health and disaster relief.
Minds & Meals is dedicated to supporting youth mental health through a national partnership
with Headspace, which provides early intervention mental health services to 12-25-year-olds across Australia.
Headspace CEO Jason Trethowan said two in five young people experience a mental health disorder each year.
“By partnering with Domino’s Minds & Meals, more young people will be able to get support
from Headspace when and where they need it most.
Domino’s goal is to contribute $750,000 over three years to help young Aussies.

Minds & Meals will also support disaster relief by delivering safe, hot meals, and financial support, during times of crisis.
Domino’s ANZ CEO and Minds & Meals executive director Don Meij said he is proud to be
supporting these important causes.
“As one of the largest employers of young people, Domino’s recognises the urgent need for
youth mental health support in our communities. We are privileged to be in the position to
respond quickly in times of major disaster and get safe, hot meals to those who need it most.
“I’m incredibly proud to be supporting both of these important causes through our new
registered charity Minds & Meals, which is only made possible through the generosity of our
customers who round up their orders and purchase pizza on Domino’s for Good Day.”
On Friday 9 February 2024 (World Pizza Day), more than 900 Domino’s stores across
Australia and New Zealand will participate in the third annual Domino’s for Good Day, donating $1 from selected pizzas and 10c from select drinks to the Minds & Meals.
