This week I spent a day with Lee from Ozharvest. I had a great day with Lee and she taught me so much about food waste and what she does with Ozharvest to reduce the amount of food waste while also helping those in need. Ozharvest is in most big cites in Austraila. What Ozharvest does is collects food from restaurants and stores which would otherwise go in the bin and give it to people that are in need. This is not only good for the environment but good for people and the community to. This also reduces green house gases.
We collected three and a half van fulls of food for local charities in just one day!
But since it started Ozharvest has:
We collected everything from Meat, Pies, Fruit, Veggies, Pizzas, Dairy, Juice, Mushrooms, Garlic, Bread, Snacks and Soft Drink.
Ozharvest was started by a lady by the name of Ronni Kahn. She hated to see how much great food went to waste. Originally Ozharvest only had one delivery van but now have 21 across Australia
I will start to make a page on Ozharvest on my website. To see the great work Lee is doing visit Ozharvest Gold Coast on Facebook.
