Help FareShare source priority ingredients for our meals

Support our chefs with a food drive

If you’d like to take part in a food drive for FareShare, please email Patrick Lanyon patrick.lanyon@fareshare.net.au. Our rescue vans will collect 100kg or more of priority ingredients from the Melbourne area.

Best for food drives:

  • Tinned Tomatoes
  • Dried Chickpeas
  • Lentils
  • Flour
  • Tinned Legumes

Not suitable:

  • Fresh Meat
  • Fresh Vegetables
  • Eggs
  • Bread

We always need ingredients for our nutritious meals and here’s how you can help!

Whether a school, business, community group or bunch of friends, you can run a food drive to help us source priority ingredients which are hard to acquire through normal food rescue channels. Right now our Melbourne chefs are desperate for tinned tomatoes. These make a great ‘can castle’ challenge.

Tinned tomatoes are fantastic ingredients helping ensure we always have nutrition to add to our meals when fresh veggies are scarce. 

We also need dried chickpeas and lentils to add to our nutritious ready-to-eat meals while flour is an essential ingredient for making pastry for our famous quiches and sausage rolls.

Please note fresh meat, vegetables, eggs and bread are not suitable for community food drives.

Massive thanks to these food drive supporters
