Team building with social impact

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

We operate high-volume production kitchens 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, cook and pack single-serve meals, soups and sweet fruit-based treats. 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 propagate 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
