For more than 21 years, UFVRA has been a champion for migrants and refugees from around the globe. Our legacy of compassionate service has made a difference in the lives of more than 400,000 people who have sought safety and hope in Australian’s communities or other countries. Our history reflects our own deep immigrant roots and passionate commitment to welcoming newcomers, especially those who are most affected by war and in need.

UFVRA is one of Australia’s smallest food rescue volunteer organizations. We work with food growers, manufacturers and retailers to rescue surplus and unsold edible food that would otherwise be wasted in landfill, and distribute it to local communities, residential area, street, and disadvantage family Australia. These charities run food programs to support people in need in their communities. The food we rescue is redistributed to the vulnerable Australians and is also turned into nutritious meals by the organisations we work with. Their community food programs help Australians including:

  • Refugees and Asylum seekers

  • Families in crisis

  • Elderly and low income people

  • Refugees and asylum seekers

  • Homeless people

  • Indigenous Australians

  • Students.
