While FareShare has a stable of regular, individual volunteers, we also have groups of staff from large companies who come in for a half day shift – including Accenture, AMP, Clayton Utz, Fonterra, GE, Heinz, Jemena, NAB, Tabcorp, and Treasury Wine Estates. This corporate volunteering program involves our professional coordination of groups of volunteers, together with induction and training.
Staff volunteering is becoming increasingly popular with companies through the community programs of many businesses, and we are in high demand in this area.
Volunteering with FareShare provides many of these corporate employees with real insight into food wastage, food security and the role of community organisations.
The feedback from our corporate volunteer groups has been glowing – they keenly value the insight they gain into the nature of food relief, the cooking skills they pick up and the camaraderie and bonding they experience with their colleagues.
Many corporate volunteers have gone on to become regular volunteers with us or other community organisations.
