Sharing a good meal is one of the great pleasures of life.

Yet for many, meals are lonely affairs and none more so than at Christmas.

That’s why FareShare needs donations to our Christmas appeal to help us connect more people over a meal at this important time.

FareShare helps the Father Bob Maguire Foundation feed 600 people a week. People in need of company as well as a square meal.

People like Anna, who had an excellent job until she suffered a stroke. She is now grateful to receive help with meals. “It has got an incredible impact on your mental health because you don’t have to worry you have nothing to eat,” said Anna.

According to Father Bob, “more and more people are getting more and more hungry.”

To bring them together around a table, FareShare needs to rescue more food, cook more meals and raise more funds. Your tax deductible donation at this important time will help us.

$50 – Enables FareShare to cook 75 free, nutritious meals for homeless, hungry and those doing it tough.

$100 – Will allow FareShare to rescue $1,000 worth of fresh vegies, meat and dairy produce from supermarkets.

$200 – Helps FareShare cook and distribute 300 free, hearty meals to Victorian charities like Father Bob’s.
