It takes a lot of ingredients to cook one million meals in a year and our new video shows how we did it.
2015 was a year of big numbers for FareShare. We rescued 544,543 kg of food, cooked 1,075,148 meals and assisted 402 charities.
Our list of regular volunteers climbed from 500 to 750, we welcomed 3000 students from 72 schools into our Schools in the Kitchen program and some 80 organisations volunteered for corporate shifts.
FareShare benefited from 35 new food donors and we also began supplying ready to eat meals to seven new Melbourne charities including Salvation Army Sunshine, Father Bob Maguire Foundation and Love Thy Neighbour.
But numbers don’t tell the real story. Meet the faces behind our epic year – the volunteers, food donors and charities – by watching the year in pictures.
A huge thank you to our friends Alister and Rob at The Post Project for generously donating their time to make this fantastic production.
