Running a food charity is not cheap.
FareShare does not receive regular government funding.
We need to raise $3 million every year to cover crucial operating costs and capital expenses. Without it, we could not keep our ovens cooking, our freezers and cool rooms operational, our food rescue vans on the road and our kitchen gardens flourishing.
FareShare does not receive regular government funding to cover the costs of our operations.
Your tax deductible donation will help us to collect surplus food from supermarkets, farmers and other food businesses. It will also pay for the cost of running our kitchen, and then distributing food to hundreds of Victorian charities.
In addition to the wonderful support of volunteers, we are fortunate to receive pro bono help from many businesses to cover basic costs such as maintenance of kitchen equipment, packaging and cleaning materials.
This lowers our overheads and enables us to spend donations on rescuing food and cooking meals.
