Tonnes of food rescued
To cook a million, nutritious meals a year, FareShare needs a constant supply of quality ingredients. Sourcing enough fresh vegetables to meet the growing demand for food from charities is one of our biggest challenges.
FareShare Kitchen Gardens, with the generous support of founder partner RACV, is tackling this problem head on by growing our own vegetables to supplement rescued produce.
The FareShare Schools in the Kitchen program provides a unique opportunity for students to learn about the reality of hunger in our community and begin their own response to the issue through action.
Students will also learn about food waste and rescue. They may even pick up some cooking skills — all of this while making a tangible difference in the community.
FareShare offers businesses a unique opportunity to escape the workplace and team build in a different environment – the FareShare kitchen! Corporate groups learn from real chefs and cook hundreds of meals for people in need on a single shift.
