Food For Change | Melbourne

Food For Change grows and rescues fresh nutritious food to feed those in need. The idea started in 2016 in Melbourne with the realisation that there was plenty of vacant land that could be farmed to provide quality fresh food to those in need. Since then we have set up our first major farm site and currently we are trilling our community garden growing program and local community food rescue program.

I founded Food For Change in 2016 and currently sit on the board as well as playing an active role in the roll out of our programs around Australia. Besides the work i do for Food for Change, my days are filled with looking after my son, hiking, cooking and trying to squeeze in as many adventures as possible!

Co Ground/Co Ground Coffee | Melbourne

Co-Ground is not your classic charity. It is a global network of changemakers working together to make equality real. Through social enterprise, vibrant events and committed volunteers, Co-Ground feeds 100% of its profits where they counts most, in our community programs. We have education and livelihood programs in the Asia-Pacific that are all community developed and led, ensuring our impact is sustainable.

Matthew Kwong | Melbourne

I’m currently studying a double degree of Business (Finance) and Industrial Design @ Monash University. Besides from studying (and Charity Tap), I’m the National Marketing Lead for UNIHACK Australia and an entrepreneurship ambassador at Monash University’s startup initiative, The Generator. My passion lies within using my design and business expertise to create positive social impact, whether it’s through developing meaningful products or making services more accessible to those who need it.

I’m a 17 year-old designer, problem solver and community builder. I’ve got a tendency to be extremely optimistic about people and the world we live in. I truly believe that everyone has value to add in this world, but the systems of education currently in place don’t help us realise that potential. There are so many issues out there to be solved, and so many people with great ideas who want to make a difference but are not empowered to act on them. I think that if we were able to help young people around the world reach their potential, we’d have generations growing up who interact mostly through kindness, empathy and compassion, while being empowered with the skills to make the world a better place. The thought of such a world is what drives me.
