It may be hard to believe in ‘the lucky country’, but hunger is a serious issue that goes largely unnoticed. Food rescue is the foundation of OzHarvest and provides many vulnerable communities with a regular supply of fresh, nutritious food rescued from over 3,700 food donors including supermarkets, cafes, delis, restaurants, hotels, airports, corporate kitchens and manufacturers across the country.
OzHarvest’s impact in the community is measured through our Social Return on Investment (SROI) ﬁgures. For every dollar invested into OzHarvest, $6.75 is returned back to the community through reduced food expenditure for charity agencies.
Good food should not go to waste when millions of people are still hungry.
