Latest Annual Report
Report Summary – 2015/2016
FareShare grew as an organisation in every way in 2016. We rescued more food, cooked more meals, redistributed more food and grew our wonderful community of volunteers.
We assisted more charities and we travelled further afield to deliver our meals. We also started two innovative new programs.
We launched FareShare Kitchen Gardens to grow our own vegetables and now have food growing at three sites to supply our kitchen. The first in Abbotsford supported by RACV, the second at Moorabbin Airport and the third on the Baguley family farm in Clayton South.
We welcomed offenders serving court or parole orders into our kitchen to increase the number of meals available for people with disadvantage. The collaboration with the Department of Justice and Jesuit Social Services boosted our production while promoting positive behavior change among offenders.
And at the end of the year, we also raised the funds for a game changer – a new warehouse. This will increase our storage capacity tenfold and quadruple our freezer space, allowing us to rescue more food and cook more food.
