Ever wondered what happens to the left overs and excess food from restaurants, retailers, food outlets and corporate kitchens? Previously the thousands of kilograms of food was dumped and turned into landfill.
Not any more. OzHarvest is a not-for-profit oganisation and has found a way to save the foods to feed the communities at risk. Established in November 2004, with one van, OzHarvest rescues the excess food from these venues across Sydney, Canberra and Wollongong. Each month, OzHarvest’s fleet of vans delivers around 100,000 meals to over 150 charities.
How can you help? Simply SMS FOOD to 1991 1121 and your $3.50 donation will help OzHarvest raise $1 million by July 2010 so they can distribute one million more meals.
