OzHarvest was established in 2004 as a food rescue program to help feed those who are most vulnerable while at the same time addressing the issue of food wastage in Australia. OzHarvest now operates nationally, rescuing over 100 tonnes of food each week from over 3,000 food donors including supermarkets, farmers markets, wholesalers, producers, restaurants and corporate events.
OzHarvest Sunshine Coast launched in 2014 with a small cadre of dedicated volunteers. Over 50 volunteers now support operations that cover Gympie down the Coast and into the hinterland. With close to 30 suppliers donating food, OzHarvest currently supports 28 charities, schools, community centres and churches who convert the food into meals or provide food hampers to local community members in need.
Since inception, OzHarvest Sunshine Coast has rescued and redistributed over 150,000 kg of quality surplus food - the equivalent of 450,000 meals.
In addition to food rescue, OzHarvest nationally and locally is committed to helping reduce food waste through advocacy and education. It is striking that as a nation, we produce enough food to feed 60 million people – yet two million still go hungry every year and rely of food relief. Change starts at home. Wasting food wastes everything. We can each be part of the solution.
