Pitney Bowes Melbourne finds its green thumb for a good cause

By Aye Verckens

On Friday 13 September, the Melbourne team spent the day volunteering at the FareShare Kitchen Garden in Abbotsford.

The team learnt some gardening skills and spent time pruning, weeding, planting and harvesting fresh vegetables and herbs.

The team was connected to FareShare through United Way of Australia, who thanked our volunteers for being so enthusiastic and getting involved in FareShare’s mission of rescuing food that would otherwise go to waste from supermarkets, wholesalers, farmers and other businesses and cooking it into free nutritious meals for people in need.
While FareShare aims to use as much rescued food as possible, they also have their own garden where they grow nutritious vegetables for their kitchen. Our team learned gardening skills and spent time pruning, weeding, planting and harvesting fresh vegetables and herbs.

“It was a great day out for the Melbourne team, spending quality time with colleagues and doing something good for the community,” said Cameron Russell, Director, Human Resources.

In Melbourne, FareShare prepares more than 5,500 free meals a day for charities such as soup vans, homeless shelters, women’s refuges and community food banks.
