OzHarvest is a charitable organization that rescues excess food from restaurants, retailers, food outlets and corporate kitchens that would otherwise be discarded and delivers it to charities that feed the disadvantaged and homeless.
Oz harvest is a simple, effective service and is provided free to both food donor and recipient. The food is picked up and delivered the same day using refrigerated vans with a changing daily schedule.
The work they do has a dual impact:
• By supplementing the nutritional wellbeing, dignity and health of at risk communities OzHarvest enables organizations to reduce their food budget and redirect their funding to education and rehabilitation.
• By ensuring that good food is being eaten rather than going into landfill OzHarvest is helping the environment by ensuring tons of carbon emissions do not pollute the atmosphere.
OzHarvest collects over 15 tonnes of excess food every week in Sydney alone!
Every donation of $1 allows them to deliver 1 additional meal to someone in need.
