Our Single Volunteers have already cooked tens of thousands of meals for some of Melbourne’s homeless and hungry.

Cooking for a Cause is one of a series of Single Volunteers events organised by m.a.d.woman. This event supported Melbourne organisation Fare Share.

m.a.d.woman encourages, inspires and enables people to make a positive difference in the environment, community and to the lives of people who need support through campaigns and programs to improve our world.

We already know that every single volunteer can make a difference. We also know that in this day and age it can sometimes be hard to meet like-minded people without going to bars or going online.

With that in mind, m.a.d.woman created the Single Volunteers program and we are planning some exciting new events where every SINGLE volunteer can make a difference, have an opportunity to meet new people – and maybe find something more!

We kicked off our first couple of events by supporting a great Victorian initiative – Fare Share.  Our teams cooked a total of more than 5000 meals for Melbourne’s hungry and homeless in evening blitzes. The feedback was excellent and like-minded people found new friends as they worked as teams to make a difference.

Fare Share provides free healthy, nutritious meals to hungry and malnourished people in Melbourne.  But there’s something different about this team of passionate chefs – they make meals using surplus food donated by businesses – food that would have otherwise gone to landfill.
