Beaconhills College is once again supporting charity FareShare’s annual Feed Melbourne Appeal.

From Monday 27 May to Friday 7 June, we will ask families to donate one item; a packet of short pasta, a tin of tomatoes or a pack of plain flour.

This appeal will help support people struggling to put food on the table this winter. FareShare rescues surplus food that would otherwise go to waste and cooks more than one million free, nutritious meals a year. Our Senior School students have volunteered in the FareShare kitchens to help cook meals.

The meals go to more than 400 charities, including the Vinnies Food Van. Beaconhills College staff members regularly volunteer on the Vinnies Van to help distribute meals in the local area.
FareShare also redistributes large quantities of uncooked food collected from supermarkets, wholesalers and farmers directly to Victorian charities.

Beaconhills parent bulletins will have details this week on how College families can donate.
