dollars raised for food charities
community food relief charities supported
The Feed Appeal was co-founded by FareShare in 2009 with the aim of helping grassroots food relief charities feed more people in need.
Fareshare and fellow founder News Corp Australia recognised that frontline charities wanted to help more people in their local communities but were often unable to because they were lacking the infrastructure or funding to do so.
The Feed Appeal grants money to address these issues and allow charities to receive, store and distribute more food to vulnerable Australians.
FareShare’s investment in the Feed Appeal has helped it grow from a Melbourne-only appeal to a national fundraiser in 2019.
Since its inception, it has raised $7.5 million through community donations and collections at Woolworths checkouts to help organisations purchase items including freezes, fridges, cool rooms, refrigerated vehicles, storage and ovens.
One hundred per cent of money raised is given back to charities, thanks to philanthropic funding from Newman’s Own Foundation covering all administration costs.
FareShare is committed to making a long-term contribution to the collective effort of food relief in Australia via the Feed Appeal each year.
