The Lunch has been held since 1989. It takes place in Parliament House Sydney, as near as possible to April 18, the date of Jessie’s birthday.

Over the years, the lunch has attracted a dedicated group of supporters who come away well-fed by the Parliament House chefs and inspired by the speakers and the emotionally powerful stories behind the past and current annual grant winners. The Trust is proud that this event in Jessie’s name has become a Sydney institution.

The 2024 Jessie Street Trust Annual Lunch is focusing on gendered violence in online spaces
