What is OzHarvest?
OzHarvest is Australia’s leading food rescue organisation with a driving purpose to Nourish Our Country. Founded by Ronni Kahn in 2004, it began with a simple concept to rescue good food that would otherwise go to waste and deliver it to people in need.
Each week OzHarvest rescues over 180 tonnes of quality surplus food from more than 3,500 food donors, including restaurants, shopping centres, hotels and supermarkets, and delivers it directly to more than 1300 charitable agencies.
OzHarvest’s education programs include: NEST – tailor made workshops that support people in need with nutrition education and life skills, Nourish – a hospitality training program for ‘at risk’ youth, FEAST – a curriculum aligned program for primary school kids and Fight Food Waste – to inspire behavioural change to prevent food waste at home.
Every $1 donated allows OzHarvest to deliver two meals to people in need.
