Unverified non-profit organisation

OzHarvest is a non-denominational charity that rescues excess food which would otherwise be discarded. This excess food is distributed to charities supporting the vulnerable in Sydney, Canberra, Newcastle, Adelaide and Brisbane. OzHarvest was founded in Sydney, November 2004. We began with one van and delivered 4,000 meals in our first month of operations. Currently in Sydney OzHarvest delivers 266, 000 meals per month with a fleet of 8 vehicles.
Australia wide OzHarvest delivers 333,000 meals per month with a fleet of 12 vans. OzHarvest believes that good food should not go to waste. In fact, by distributing it to those in need, we turn excess food into a resource and save thousands of kilograms of food from being dumped as landfill each year.
