Fareshare’s curried sausages are a winner at Oonah, which provides culturally-appropriate services for First Nations peoples in Melbourne’s inner and outer East.
Oonah’s Tucker Bag program is open to anyone in need – and sadly that need has grown sharply with the cost-of-living crisis.
“We’re seeing higher need among families at the moment,” says Oonah’s Natasha Zangmeister. “Even with both parents working, it’s not enough.
“The meals are good for Elders. A lot of them are single but still at home. There’s no prep work and the meals are very nutritious.”
Natasha says working men and women also appreciate a meal on the go. “Some are laborers who can’t afford the traditional pie for lunch anymore, so they heat up a FareShare meal at work.”
