Local Preserves



Local preserves

Our program, Corner Store Foods, takes donated produce from the backyards of Monash residents, and rather than letting it fall and waste on the ground, we turn it into high quality preserves.

We collect excess produce from the Monash area and extend the shelf life, by preserving it into jams, chutneys, relishes, sauces, cordials, curds and pastes.

Produce is preserved during volunteer preserving days, with a portion sold to keep the program financially sustainable – a portion returned to the grower – and a portion donated to local food relief agencies.

Our mission is to reduce the amount of food that drops to the ground and goes to waste, as well as building engaged and resilient communities that come together to preserve the produce, learn new skills and connect as a community.

We’re taking action on climate and preserving the future.
