Want to help?
Help us to continue to help feed those people who are struggling with the increased costs of food and can't afford three meals a day seven days a week. You can read our current appeal and donate securely online or call 9428 0044 or download our donation form. Every little bit helps, especially at this time of year.
You can make a one-off donation or a regular monthly donation. For every $100 donated we can make another 200 meals.
You can either make a secure online donation directly to us or download the donation form and send it to 1 Thompson Street, Abbotsford, 3067, or email or fax it to 9428 1844.
All donations $2.00 and over are tax deductible. FareShare is a registered DGR (Deductible Gift Recipient).
Workplace Giving is an easy and convenient way for you to donate to FareShare. Your regular monthly donation is deducted from your salary (before tax) and if matched by your organisation, you can turn $3.50 (the cost of a coffee) into 20 more meals for disadvantaged Victorians.
