Corporate Volunteering - Fighting Waste, Feeding Queensland, Building your Team

Fareshare Australia Inc - Qld
Logo for Fareshare Australia Inc - Qld

FareShare’s mission is simple. We rescue food that would otherwise gone to waste and cook it into free, nutritious meals for people in crisis. Our vision is for a society where food is not wasted, and no one goes hungry.

Corporate volunteering:

FareShare relies on a community of 400+ regular volunteers to help prepare our meals. Our corporate volunteering program helps support their work, connecting your team to the community and improving their understanding of food waste and hunger.

Under the guidance of experienced chefs, each team of corporate volunteers works together to cook more than 1000 nutritious meals for struggling Queenslanders, from people sleeping rough in the city, to families escaping domestic violence, pensioners and communities working to rebuild in the wake of bushfires, floods and drought.

Time out of the office and in the FareShare kitchen is a worthwhile investment in culture, relationships and team-building while making a tangible difference for those in need. Volunteering is a great way to reconnect teams and has strong positive impacts on mental health and wellbeing.

Your team will be able to proudly say they helped feed over a thousand people thanks to their work.

We can accommodate groups of 8 to 20 volunteers. If you have more or less volunteers please get in touch with us to discuss.

We offer half or full-day volunteering and, with adequate notice, can accommodate weekend or evening sessions and provide delicious food cooked from rescued ingredients during volunteers' tea and dinner breaks.

Financial contribution:

FareShare requires a financial contribution to cover the cost of providing your volunteering experience. This contribution forms a significant part of FareShare’s modest income.

Cost structure:

  • $1000 +GST for a group of 8 to 16 participants
