Over the past 12 months FareShare has made a step change in our social impact by nearly doubling the number of free nutritious meals we cook.
Firing up the cookers in our new Brisbane kitchen was without doubt the highlight of our year.
Nearly 500 people are now regularly volunteering in our Queensland kitchen where we cook around 6,000 meals a day.
Meanwhile in Melbourne, our staff and volunteers have been the quiet achievers. This year we increased the number of meals we cooked by 17 per cent.
Being able to store large donations of valuable ingredients at our Derrimut warehouse, adding shifts in our Abbotsford kitchen, having people on community-based orders prep food in our Derrimut warehouse kitchen, and more vegetables coming out of the ground at our kitchen gardens have all contributed to this growth.
None of this could have been achieved without the individual donors, philanthropic foundations and businesses that have got behind FareShare’s mission to rescue food and fight hunger with free, nutritious meals.
