The Southern Highlands chapter is completely run by a small team of volunteers. Full of enthusiasm, this team works hard to support our community rescuing food from our food donors and delivering it to charities who provide it to people in need using personal vehicles. You can volunteer to rescue food on Monday – Friday between 8am – 10am. Assisting on a food rescue run requires a level of fitness, the ability to climb loading dock ladders and carry/lift up to 10kgs repeatedly. Other more sporadic volunteering opportunities exist forfundraising, community engagement and ad-hoc food collections.

FEAST (Food Education and Sustainability Training) is a curriculum aligned program aimed at year 5 and 6 students. FEAST runs for 7-10 weeks and is a STEM project-based learning program focusing on food and sustainability. The teacher-led program can be adapted and changed to suit your school’s needs.
Like any good FEAST, it’s designed to be fun, engaging and filled with good food.
