Oz Harvest – helping to make a positive difference to the lives of vulnerable men, women and children across Australia.

OzHarvest was founded by Ronni Kahn in 2004, after noticing the huge volume of delicious consumable food being discarded from restaurants, hotels, supermarkets and corporate events every day. She decided there had to be a better way.

Ronni began collecting surplus food with just one van – the first of many donations -from the Goodman+ Foundation, which in its first month delivered 4,000 meals to organisations that feed vulnerable Australians.

OzHarvest is now Australia’s leading food rescue organisation, rescuing quality surplus food from more than 3,000 businesses, including supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, hotels, retailers, airports and retail food outlets.

How is the food collected?
Every week our fleet of refrigerated vans save over 100 tonnes of food from going to landfill and deliver it direct to 1000+ charitable agencies, helping to make a positive difference to the lives of vulnerable men, women and children across Australia.

What kind of food is considered reusable?
Any quality food, still within date, in unopened packaging. A usual café collection may include pies, sausage rolls, pre-packed sandwiches or salads, bakery items.

What kind of food is collected?
Where does the food go and how long does that process take?
OzHarvest collects quality surplus food, still within use-by date that can no longer be sold by supermarket, cafes, delis, food businesses, corporate kitchens etc. We collect fresh fruit & veg, meat, pre-cooked meals, milk, bakery items, non perishable goods and deliver it in real time directly to charities who help feed people in need.

How can an individual cafe be involved? Is there a certain amount of food required as a minimum?
Any cafes with excess quality food in reasonable volumes (more than a couple of muffins!) can donate to OzHarvest. The best way to find out if we can collect is to call 1800 106 008 and speak to our logistics team who can advise if we have food rescue operations and capacity to collect in that area.

What locations do you operate in?
OzHarvest operates nationally in Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Newcastle, and Perth, and in various regional communities.
