FareShare Volunteering

The largest charity kitchen in Australia has come to Brisbane to cook more than one million nutritious meals a year for Queenslanders in need.

FareShare’s expansion into Brisbane is made possible by a strategic collaboration with Foodbank Queensland.

The partnership plays to both organisations’ strengths. FBQ will source and supply raw ingredients into the kitchens and oversee the direct distribution of cooked meals to Queensland charities.


FareShare relies on a community of regular volunteers to help prepare their meals, to promote community connectedness and improve understanding about food waste and hunger.

FareShare also offers one-off volunteer shifts to businesses and community groups to help fund the operation of the kitchen.  Each shift is $750 (plus gst) for a group size of minimum 12 and a maximum of 16. For larger groups please contact us directly for details.

Under the guidance of experienced chefs each team of corporate volunteers work together to cook more than 1000 nutritious meals for those in need. Leaving the kitchen with the satisfaction of having made a meaningful contribution to the community and those in need.
