FareShare Schools in the Kitchen offers 4 main areas of focus in relation to further learning:
1. Year 9 - Working towards a fairer Australia
2. Year 9 - Rescuing food: benefits to community and the environment
3. Reducing food waste to fight hunger
4. Food Insecurity in Australia

When you complete a booking please select which area you would like your experience at FareShare to focus on.

Year 9 - Working towards a fairer Australia:
At sometime during the past year 4 million Australians have at experienced food insecurity. This unit looks at who is most at risk and the reasons why and also the benefits to both the individual and society from everyone being well norished. This focus area looks at who is going without in our society and what we can do to assist.

Year 9 - Rescuing food: benefits to community and the environment
This unit follows food from the paddock to our plates and explores the reasons why food is lost at each stage of this journey, the negative impacts this loss has on the environment and how redirecting some of this food to feed those in need can help address some of the major challenges we face as a society. We also explore what we can do on both a personal level and a communtiy level to help reduce food waste.

Reducing food waste to fight hunger:
Today we have ready access to a wider range of foods than at any time in our history. But the ease with which we can access food through supermarkets and other food retailers hides the complexity of our modern food production processes.
As Victorians, we throw away 25% of the food we purchase. That is around $2,200 a year!
By rescuing food before it goes to landfill FareShare not only feeds Victorians that are otherwise going hungry, we are also saving the embodied energy and preventing wasted food from contributing to climate change.
This focus area looks into how and why so much food is wasted and the positive effects of food rescue.

Food Insecurity in Australia:
If a person is food insecure it means they lack access to enough nutritious food to meet the requirement of three meals a day, every day. This focus area looks into how people may find themselves facing food insecurity, who is facing food insecurity, and what support services are available to them.
