Time away from the workplace in FareShare’s kitchens or kitchen garden is a fantastic way to re-connect with your team and build positive relationships within your organisation.

We are delighted with the level of interest in our corporate volunteering program. Please note, all our corporate shifts are fully booked for the remainder of 2022

Bookings for our 2023 corporate volunteering program will be launched in December. If you have not yet contacted us about our corporate volunteering program, please email rosemary.kelly@fareshare.net.au so we can add you to our mailing list. 

Team building with social impact

FareShare offers a unique, meaningful and popular corporate volunteering experience for organisations large and small.

We open up our high-volume kitchens in Abbotsford and Derrimut for half-day shifts for colleagues to build relationships and have fun while processing food and cooking and packing thousands of meals for people in need.

Guided by our experienced supervisors, participants process and prepare freshly harvested and rescued vegetables, roll pastry, bake quiches, crack eggs, and cook and pack sausage rolls or vegie rolls or single-serve meals. They will also learn about food waste, food rescue and food poverty in our city.

FareShare also offers corporate volunteering opportunities at our Abbotsford Kitchen Garden on Friday mornings where volunteers weed, mulch, fertilise, harvest, compost and propogate vegetables and herbs.

Feedback has been glowing and some corporate volunteers have gone on to become regular volunteers. Importantly, everyone leaves feeling more connected and knowing they have made a direct social impact.

More than 750 organisations have already volunteered at FareShare including
