Tonnes of food rescued
To cook 1.2 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 is tackling this problem head on by growing our own vegetables to supplement rescued produce. In 2017, we grew nearly 40 tonnes of our own veg.
FareShare is expanding to Brisbane with a second kitchen capable of cooking five million meals a year.
We are establishing a $4.5 million custom-built, production kitchen in collaboration with Foodbank to support Queenslanders in need. We will continue to grow the number of meals we cook for people doing it tough in Victoria.
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.
