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.
Our staff and volunteers love working in the FareShare kitchen. It’s fun, rewarding and brings like-minded people together for a great cause.
For two nights in November we are sharing the love by opening our kitchen to volunteer shifts for singles. For details of this special Good Food Month event with RSVP, check our newsroom. We will be announcing more events in due course.
