Oz Harvest Food Rescue Ready to Hit Beaufort St!
OzHarvest is a not-for-profit organisation 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.
The work it does has a dual impact:
- By supplementing the nutritional wellbeing, dignity and health of at risk communities OzHarvest enables organisations to reduce their food budget and redirect their funding to education and rehabilitation.
- By ensuring that good food is being eaten rather than going to landfill OzHarvest is helping the environment by ensuring tons of carbon emissions do not pollute the atmosphere.
Oz Harvest relies completely on the donations and support of philanthropic businesses, the community and individuals to keep its operations running.
