FareShare rescues food that would otherwise go to waste and cooks it into free nutritious meals for people in need. Around four million Australians experience food insecurity each year while as much as $20 billion worth of food is wasted.
FareShare tackles the tragedy head on by rescuing surplus, quality food from supermarkets, wholesalers, farmers and other businesses and cooking it into nutritious meals.
FareShare’s new production kitchen, designed to cook up to five million meals a year, opened in Brisbane in October 2018 as part of an exciting collaboration with Foodbank. The new operation effectively doubles FareShare’s social impact, bringing our daily total of cooked meals to around 10,000.
FareShare helps avoid food waste and diverts surplus, edible food from landfill. This reduces greenhouse pollution and ensures food produced for humans reaches those who need it most.
We are a charity and we rely on the generosity of philanthropic foundations, businesses and individual donors to rescue food and cook meals.
