This morning the Queensland team had a chance to come down to the Fareshare kitchen to prepare meals for those who are in a food stress situation.
This is, of course, homeless people but also normal families with the income-earner going through illness or financial difficulties. So far we have packed, sealed and deployed 450 meals with more than double to go.
Alison Lane, CSR lead at Enable Professional Services said,
I’m always looking for meaningful events for our people to participate in.
I’m proud that Enable prioritises it’s Corporate Social Responsibility program, as we recognise how important it is for our people to feel engaged not only within our organisation but within our community.
This morning I took my team out of the office and down to FareShare at Foodbank Australia to prepare meals for those in a food-stress situation. Pretty powerful stuff hearing about the great work they do with the staggering amount of unnecessary wastage that’s happening every day in this great country of ours.
We packaged 2784 meals in a 3.5-hour session this morning, it was a great team-building exercise that makes a real difference to struggling families. I highly recommend Foodbank for a CSR team building event.”
Great work team.
