Reconciliation

Our Reconciliation Action Plan

FareShare is finalising our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) because we are committed to helping improve food insecurity for First Nations peoples living in remote, very remote, regional, outer regional, discrete communities and urban parts of Australia. We believe that formalising a RAP will support us to build our knowledge of, and respect for, First Nations history and culture and help us to develop that knowledge in both our staff and also our wider community of volunteers, stakeholders, and donors.

Jason Mollenhauer, our First Nations Officer, coordinates our meal program for First Nations communities and services from our Brisbane kitchen.

Jason was born on Wakka Wakka Country and has extensive family lines and connections in Meanjin (Brisbane) together with many years’ experience in community development and achieving outcomes with and for First Nations Australians.

“I am passionate and committed to improving food insecurity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples living in remote, regional and urban parts of Australia,” says Jason. “Poor nutrition and diet-related chronic conditions are responsible for a large portion of ill health experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Improving nutrition and food security are fundamentally important in ‘Closing the Gap’ for First Nations peoples.”

Jason leads FareShare’s work in supporting regional and remote communities where access to affordable, nutritious food is often limited and logistics challenging. He also coordinates activities closer to the kitchen, including our support of local community groups and services.
