How FareShare meals help de-escalate conflict in times of crisis FareShare meals offer more than a feed to the clients at Vincentcare Glenroy – they can also serve as a calming influence for highly-agitated people.
Almost every continent is represented in this diverse queue, which is unified by one motivating force: the need for food.
As the queue inches forward, students’ eyes light up as they approach the crates of nutritious, cooked FareShare meals.
Virtually every student takes one or two. Several of them ask specifically for the same, delicious FareShare meal they have had in previous weeks.
On offer this time is a goat curry, lamb with rice, salmon with gnocchi, a vegetarian cauliflower and cheese bake, and a vegan chickpea masala curry.
This food relief service is provided by the Rotary Club of Box Hill every Saturday. Simon Wheelton is the program director. He is grateful for the FareShare meals we provide and says that the meals are a massive hit with the students.
