FairFeed is a community project focused on empowering Melbourne chefs and employing displaced hospitality workers, administration staff and delivery drivers to create and deliver nourishing, restaurant-quality meals that start at $4 and are easy to reheat at home. It came to fruition after the pandemic struck, and it supports the Melbourne economy because the team buys from suppliers within the community and direct from growers.
FairFeed has thrived on supplying value meals to help reduce financial stress on people within the Melbourne community as well as the Mornington Peninsula and Frankston, with deliveries on Thursdays. Updates on additional delivery days are available on the group’s website.
“We’ve been able to employ and pay the wages of 75 staff,” said founder Tom Jacobson. “Within the first nine months we hit 25,000 orders. We’re stimulating the economy and looking after everyone.”
Christmas catering includes hampers, picnic kits and mezze platters with delivery available up until Christmas Eve. Tom’s eager to hit his goal of 10,000 people fed by FairFeed during Christmas – can you help his dream come true?
