OzHarvest was established in 2004 to address two fundamental issues in society – the staggering waste of quality, excess food, and the need to feed the vulnerable in our community. Our mission in Nourishing Our Country.
With a fleet of yellow vans, we rescue surplus good food from supermarkets, restaurants and corporate kitchens, which would otherwise have gone to landfill. We deliver this at no cost to charities feeding vulnerable people across Australia.
OzHarvest Canberra has been filling hungry bellies since 2008 and has:
- Delivered 7.9 million meals to people in need.
- Provided 104 charitable agencies with food relief.
- Diverted 2.6 million kilograms of food from landfill.
When COVID-19 hit, we rapidly adapted our operations to meet the sharp increase in demand for food relief experienced by people who had never needed food relief before, as well as those already doing it tough pre-pandemic. We established all-new programs delivering cooked meals, food hampers and nutritious produce to those in need.
In 2021, we look forward to celebrating our 8 millionth meal delivered in Canberra, with thanks to our food donors, charitable agencies and supporters across the community like Hands Across Canberra.
