You can simply make a donation to FareShare. Or you could consider giving to FareShare in a range of other ways. For example, many employers now encourage workplace giving, where a small proportion of your pay is donated to a charity (some even match your contribution). Or you could even put FareShare in your will.

All donations of $2.00 and over are tax deductible. FareShare is a registered DGR (Deductible Gift Recipient).

Where will your donation go?

FareShare does not receive regular government funding to cover the costs of our operations.

Your donation will help us to collect surplus food from supermarkets, farmers and other food businesses. It will also pay for the cost of running our kitchen, and then distributing food to hundreds of Victorian charities.

We are fortunate to receive pro bono support from many businesses – helping to cover the costs such as maintenance of commercial kitchen equipment, packaging and offsite food storage.

However, we need to raise money to keep our six refrigerated vans on the road every day, pay for electricity to run our ovens and coolrooms and employ chefs to oversee nearly 100 volunteers a day.

Workplace giving

Workplace giving is an easy and convenient way for you to donate to FareShare.

Your regular monthly donation is deducted from your salary (before tax) and in some cases matched by employers. If your company matches your donation, you can turn $3.50 (the cost of a coffee) into 15 more meals for disadvantaged Victorians. Speak to your organisation’s Payroll Officer today or contact us on 9428 0044.


Every bequest no matter how big or small, makes a big difference to the work of FareShare.

If you are making a new will or updating an existing one, please consider including a bequest to FareShare to ensure the future of our work.

This is one gift you can leave behind which will continue to make a difference and leave a lasting legacy.
