With as many as one million people visiting the Asian hawker-style markets over the next 18 nights, it’s a fantastic opportunity for FareShare to promote our message about food waste, food rescue and food poverty in our city.
Around 200 FareShare volunteers will be mingling with the crowds talking about FareShare’s mission and selling fortune cookies. For each cookie sold, we can cook two meals for vulnerable people. We are also selling Thermomix raffle tickets to help feed the hungry.
The festival features food from all over Asia, including drinks and desserts. This year there is more seating and space to enjoy the atmosphere, listen to music and watch the dragon dancers. Come on down and say g’day to our passionate volunteers. We’ll be there until November 27.
