Time away from the workplace at FareShare’s Derrimut food processing kitchen is a great way to build teamwork!

Help us cook free, nutritious meals with your colleagues or clients

Teams of up to 8 volunteers are involved in sorting and processing vegetables that have been rescued or harvested from our three kitchen gardens. Our vegetables add important nutrition to FareShare’s delicious meals which improve the lives of Australians in hardship. It is amazing how many tubs of vegetables can be prepared and how knife skills can be developed in the space of a single morning.

Shifts are available on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings from 9am to 12noon.

Corporate shifts are available at FareShare’s food processing kitchen inside our modern logistics hub at Derrimut. Our board /meeting room is also available to groups to hold team meetings after your shift.
