In the Music Real E69, our guest is Marcus Godinho who is the CEO for FareShare – a charity that rescues food that would otherwise go to waste, cooks it into nutritious meals and delivers to soup vans, homeless shelters, refuges and community food banks. We have been speaking with business owners around the globe during the lockdown and giving them a voice and a platform to share their story. Lockdown has been brutal and cruel for business around Australia with many people losing their jobs and livelihoods. Marcus talks about how the Victorian Government, Woolworths and ALH Group came together to deliver over half a million meals in May through FareShare. Thanks to travel restrictions, many international students were stranded in Brisbane with no jobs and no access to financial support. Many families across the world would be so incredibly grateful to FareShare, for keeping their kids fed at a time of great anxiety and uncertainty. So while millions of people across AUSTRALIA suddenly stopped, the FareShare team had to level up to meet a greater demand pretty much straight away.
