Kindness in the Community
CareNet exists to increase food accessibility and the community's capacity to overcome food insecurity. Since 2018, CareNet has innovated new ways to make food accessible to those experiencing food insecurity. We have done this by working together with other community groups to provide food relief from multiple locations, using a number of different models. The CareNet team works hard to provide food that is nutritious, culturally appropriate and generous.
Our core values are respect, dignity, generosity and sharing (collaboration). Together we strive to increase community capacity to meet the needs of it's most vulnerable. Would you like to join us on the journey?
What We Do
Feed people, not landfills
Good food should never end up in landfill, especially when so many are struggling with food insecurity. CareNet rescues over 1000kg's of food a week.
Building community capacity
Communities work best when they work together. CareNet is the co-founder of The Food Collective Project across Banyule and Nillumbik. Using a Collective Impact Model and sharing sector experience & resource we are able to utilise each partners strength to overcome many barriers.
