Current Volunteer Opportunities
Melbourne Kitchen

Kitchen volunteers help with basic kitchen tasks – from cutting vegetables to packing meals. No formal training or professional experience is required. Please note that kitchen volunteers must be physically fit and able to be on their feet for the duration of a shift (approx. 3 hours).

If you are interested in kitchen volunteering you will be invited to attend an information session before starting on a shift. We are currently very fortunate to have a large number of people on our waiting list for kitchen volunteering, so we appreciate your patience. 

Melbourne Gardens

FareShare also has volunteers helping our gardens – to assist with growing vegetables for use in our kitchen.  We currently have two kitchen gardens and one farm site. We have a garden located next to Victoria Park Station in Abbotsford, and another at Moorabbin Airport. In partnership with commercial farmer Les Baguley, FareShare is also now planting crops on prime land at the Baguley family farm in Clayton South.

Shifts at Abbotsford are currently full, and there are only a few gaps at the Moorabbin Airport garden and on the Baguley Farm. Please complete the registration form to join a waiting list, and we will contact you as vacancies arise.
