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 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.

In Melbourne, with the help of 900 regular volunteers, FareShare cooks more than 5,000 free meals a day for charities such as soup vans, homeless shelters, women’s refuges and community food banks.

FareShare’s new production kitchen, capable of cooking 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 and meal production.

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.
