FareShare Brisbane aims to cook more than one million free and nutritious meals in its first year of operation and further scale up to five million meals a year thereafter.

To help achieve this goal, around 400 Brisbane locals have already registered to be a volunteer in the charity kitchen since its official launch in October 2018. This number is still increasing as more individuals, schools, and groups of volunteers sign up to lend a hand.

FareShare is currently working with Foodbank Queensland, the largest food relief organisation in Queensland. Foodbank is the one supplying the kitchen with surplus meat and vegetables. They also distribute the cooked meals to vulnerable Queenslanders through their existing network of 280 registered charities.

The collaboration between the two organisations helps tackle both problems with food insecurity and food waste problem in Australia.

FareShare Brisbane is always open to more volunteers. Visit their website to register as a volunteer or to donate.
