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 its founder partner RACV, will tackle 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 is set to transform a derelict site between Victoria Park railway station and Victoria Park oval into a productive oasis to grow food for the hungry.
FareShare Kitchen Garden, Abbotsford supported by RACV, will help feed our kitchen’s voracious appetite for vegetables – essential ingredients for our nutritious meals.
