FareShare | Rescuing Food - Fighting Hunger

FareShare rescues food and helps fight hunger to everyday Melburnian's.

Every day Melburnian's means people like you and me, old, young, people who simply cannot afford it.

In Victoria around 200,000 people regularly go hungry, or suffer malnutrition, through lack of regular access to healthy food. 17% of people on low incomes between the ages of 16-24 go hungry at times or are classed as 'food insecure'.

This means they have limited or uncertain access to good food.
We think that's way too many.

So, how can YOU help?
