OzHarvest rescues excess
food from food retailers, res-
taurants, event caterers, food
manufacturers, institutions and
corporate offices, and delivers it
free of charge to charities and
refuges who support people in
need in our community.
It delivers enough food for
more than 1000 meals a day for
55 refuges and charities in the
ACT and Queanbeyan. Since its
establishment in 2008, it has
rescued more than 200 tonnes of
good food from being dumped
as landfill, redistributing an
average of 2500 kilograms of
good food each week.
''The feedback we receive
from the charities we deliver to
is one of the great rewards for
our work,'' manager of Oz-
Harvest Canberra Dave Burnet
''We hear stories of charities
whose food bill has dropped
dramatically, and others who are
finding that folks in need of
counselling and support are
coming back regularly into cen-
tres because of the promise of
such great food.''
The delivery of food by
OzHarvest Canberra enables
recipient charities to redirect
funds originally budgeted for
food to other programs such as
training, rehabilitation and edu-
