Australia’s Largest Charity Kitchen Opening in Morningside

Teaming up with Foodbank Queensland, the largest food relief organisation in Queensland, FareShare is getting ready to open its doors in Morningside.

Following their acquisition of the former biotech laboratory at 46 Steel Place in Morningside, Australia’s largest charity kitchen is only a few weeks away from cooking at its first location in Brisbane.

The $4.5 million custom-built, production kitchen is reportedly capable of carrying out FareShare’s goal of cooking five million meals a year by 2023.

Foodbank Queensland will work with FareShare in reducing food waste and providing healthy cooked meals for Queenslanders experiencing food insecurity. Together, the teams aim to cook 1.25 million meals in the first 12 months, gradually scaling up to reach their target goal.

FareShare is now calling for Brisbane volunteers who will be willing to lend a helping hand in providing free and nutritious meals to those in need. Their new kitchen needs 300 volunteers to help in assisting their in-house chefs in preparing, cooking, and packing up meals.

The first shift at the kitchen will start in September 2018 prior to their official opening in October. Take note that volunteers must be at least 18 years old, unless part of a secondary school group.

Register to be a volunteer.
