OzHarvest was founded in 2004 by Ronni Kahn. After noticing the huge volume of good food going to waste from the hospitality industry, she decided there had to be a better way.
Starting in Sydney with one van, she delivered 4,000 meals in the first month.
Today, OzHarvest is Australia’s leading food rescue organisation, collecting quality excess food from commercial outlets and delivering it directly to more than 1300 charities supporting people in need across the country.
OzHarvest’s purpose is to nourish our country and in order to do this, education is crucial to help enable positive change.
