Support our chefs with a food drive

We always need ingredients for our nutritious meals and here’s how you can help!

Whether a school, business, community group or bunch of friends, you can run a food drive to help us source priority ingredients which are hard to acquire through rescue channels.

Our chefs love rice and pasta to accompany our casseroles, curries and tagines. These are universally popular foods which help make a great meal go a little bit further for someone in need. Dried short-form pasta such as penne is ideal.

We also need dried chickpeas and lentils to add to our nutritious ready-to-eat meals while flour is an essential ingredient for making pastry.

Cans are fantastic and building a can castle can be a fun challenge for a food drive. We make great use of tinned tomatoes and legumes.

Please note fresh meat, vegetables, eggs and bread are not suitable for food drives.

If you’d like to take part in a food drive for FareShare, please email Patrick Lanyon (patrick.lanyon@fareshare.net.au). Our rescue vans will collect 100 kg of priority ingredients from the Melbourne area.
