GIVING SO KIDS DON’T GO HUNGRY AT SCHOOL
Funch’s team is passionate about Aussie kids having access to nutritious snacks that are going to fuel both their bodies and minds for their days at school and beyond.
We are also strong advocates for minimising food waste and are very proud that we have created a product range that has zero food waste in the production, packing and consumption lifecycle.
It is the combination of these two passions that have driven Funch to look at opportunities to support the local Melbourne charity OzHarvest. Not only are they working tirelessly to feed those in need, but in doing so they are utilising opportunities to use food that would otherwise, needlessly go to waste.
Whilst we were unable to give food to OzHarvest to reduce waste (because of our zero food waste) we see some great opportunities to work with our communities to support and give OzHarvest some Funch Mixes to distribute to schools who provide food programs for kids that are coming to school hungry.

How are we doing this?
We have identified two great opportunities where we can give Funch Mixes to OzHarvest supported by sale both through our network of school canteens, but also through the Funch online store.
SCHOOL CANTEENS BUY OUR BUCKET AND WE DONATE A PACKET OF FUNCH
Funch commits that each time a school canteen purchases a Bulk Bucket from Funch’s product range we will give an equivalent product packet to OzHarvest.
ANYONE CAN CHOOSE TO JOIN US BY PAYING IT FORWARD FOR HUNGRY KIDS
There are several school approved products available on the Funch website www.funch.com.au available for anyone to purchase. The way this works is we go 50/50 in the cost of the product with you and then arrange to give the product to OzHarvest.
WHAT WILL OzHARVEST DO WITH FUNCH?
All of the packets of Funch that we give to OzHarvest will be distributed to schools in their network that are running programs for feeding kids that are turning up to school hungry.
