Volunteers are the heartbeat of our organisation

In Australia, We have worked with over 22,000 corporate and individual volunteers to provide and serve a massive 102,500 meals to the homeless communities of Melbourne by rescuing an astounding 218 tonne of surplus food from corporate events and the food services industry. Incredibly that’s over 66,000 people hours of service donated/ given to our local community. (the equivalent of 32 people working full time for one year). The cash value of their donated hours totals around $2.4 million. This is an outstanding achievement for a 100% volunteer organisation.
