About Share Care & Fare
In today’s times, we know that around the corner, we may be faced with challenges that take us completely away from life as we know it.
Perhaps an illness, a loss, redundancy, changes outside our control.
And in a blink, the spiral effect of that situation, changes our ability to sustain the basics: food, shelter, connection.
In a day, the way in which we give and receive, can look very different.
And that’s what this community project is about.
This project aims to share the where, who, when of opportunities to share your care & fare.
Care & Fare for safety, survival, wellbeing and human connection for specific groups and specific times of the year.
The items we focus on for those doing it tough include:
Pantry food items, unopened and within date : e.g. pasta, rice, packet food, tin food, non perishables.

Share Care & Fare is a project to support giving (what would otherwise be wasted or unappreciated by some) so others can receive (what could make the difference to their basic survival needs in life).
On our travels through our other community projects, we meet so many wonderful people and organisations doing great things in this give and receive area.
This project aims to connect people in the community, who are more able on any day, to be in the give (share care & fare) with those in appreciation of the receive (on any day).
An opportunity to become part of maintaining the balance and homeostasis of life.
Often we don’t give because we don’t know how or where.
