Thank you OzHarvest for your regular deliveries of fresh food to our service. It has made a huge difference in our clients lives in giving them fresh nutritious food weekly, which is often scarce when you are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
OzHarvest is Australia’s leading food rescue organisation, collecting quality excess food from commercial outlets.
The demand for food relief continues to rise, with over four million people in Australia struggling with food insecurity. Stopping good food going to waste and getting it to people in need helps in many ways:
Nutritious food for charities by providing high quality food to agencies which may not have been previously available.
Savings for charities as vital funds saved from grocery bills can be redirected to education, rehabilitation and other programs.
Protecting the planet by ensuring good food gets eaten rather than going to landfill helps reduce the negative impact of food waste on the environment.
Savings for food donors through reducing costs for excess food disposal and storage costs, and increasing the positive impact on the local community.
