Contact Fair Share Kitchen
The Fair Share Kitchen Program is a community-based service for local residents experiencing social and financial disadvantage. The key focus is on providing food through food recovery activities, and support through material aid and service/support linkages. It originated from Commonwealth Government funding (Department of Social Services) and State Government funding (NSW Environmental Protection Authority) for the Northern Rivers Food Recovery program. Impressively, the regional program averages between 850-1200 kilograms of food recovery per week, with 30 confirmed collections.
As one outlet in the Northern Rivers region, Kyogle Together currently supports approximately 33 individual people every Thursday between 11pm-2pm, with fresh food and pantry goods, as well as support, information and referrals. The number of beneficiaries is far greater when incorporating broader family numbers.
