FareShare is a charity whose purpose is to cook with care, creatively transforming food into nutritious meals that feed people’s dignity and wellbeing, regardless of their circumstances.


Our vision

Everyone has access to a nutritious meal every day.


Our mission

Mobilise volunteers to cook delicious, free meals from rescued, donated and our homegrown ingredients to improve the lives of Australians in hardship.

For more than 20 years FareShare has been cooking free, nutritious meals for people doing it tough.

FareShare operates Australia’s largest charity kitchens in Melbourne and Brisbane where our chefs and volunteers work hand in hand to cook the best possible meal for every person.

Every year FareShare transforms rescued, donated and our homegrown food into millions of delicious, healthy meals that feed dignity and wellbeing for Australians struggling to put food on the table. A homestyle meal shows that somebody cares and has an immediate impact.

Our healthy, delicious meals are given away free to frontline charities such as soup vans, homeless shelters, women’s refuges and community food banks.

The demand for meal relief has never been higher with the soaring cost of living, frequent natural disasters and the lingering effects of the pandemic hurting millions of Australians.

We are a charity and rely on the generosity of philanthropic foundations, businesses and individual donors.

When you support FareShare, you are not just feeding someone in need. You are giving them a ready-to-eat meal which takes the worry out of going hungry and the stress out of cooking. You are making them feel better.
