Our meals travelled far and wide. We delivered meals to First Nations communities pounded by the flooding in northern NSW and in December we made our most remote delivery to date when 6,000 FareShare meals landed in Mornington Island (a distance of around 2,700km from our Brisbane kitchen).
I have also been on the road (and in the air) in my bid to seek the guidance of and learn about each community that we partner with. From St George in the southwest to Yarrabah in Far North Queensland and Mornington Island off the Gulf of Carpentaria, I have met some amazing and inspirational community members and leaders.
FareShare in Narrm ended 2022 by providing a special caramel dessert for the Aboriginal Advancement League’s Christmas Luncheon and FareShare Meanjin saw out 2022 by heading to Cherbourg with our RAP Working Group member Aunty Ravina Waldren to take Christmas hampers, FareShare meals and toys to the community, which is currently having an COVID outbreak.
