We Love OzHarvest
OzHarvest is the first perishable food rescue organisation in Australia collecting quality excess food from commercial outlets and delivering it, direct and free of charge, to close to 500 charities providing much needed assistance to vulnerable men, women and children across Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne and Newcastle.
OzHarvest collects surplus food from all types of food providers including fruit and vegetable markets, supermarkets, hotels, wholesalers, farmers, stadiums, corporate events, catering companies, shopping centres, delis, cafes, restaurants, film and TV shoots and boardrooms.
The work OzHarvest do has a four-fold impact:
- Food deliveries to charitable organisations enable them to provide a broad range of high quality food that was not available previously.
- Food deliveries to charities enable them to redirect vital funding into education, rehabilitation and other programs, which directly benefit their clients.
- By ensuring that good food is being eaten rather than going to landfill OzHarvest is minimising food waste and saving our environment by preventing tonnes of carbon emissions from polluting the atmosphere.
- Their food donors benefit from reduced expenditure associated with the disposal of excess food, reduced food storage costs and the satisfaction of knowing they are making a valuable contribution to those in need in the local community.
With a fleet of 21 vans, OzHarvest delivers 480,000 meals per month around Australia.
At Hoshizaki Lancer we strongly agree with OzHarvests belief that good food should not go to waste. In fact, by distributing it to those in need, OzHarvest turn excess food into a resource and save thousands of kilograms of food from being dumped as landfill each year.
On average, every kilogram of food that OzHarvest rescues will avoid 2kg of greenhouse (kg CO2-eq) emissions, and avoid the consumption of 143 litres of water.
We are proud to support such an incredibly efficient organisation which according to Bain and Co, delivers greater than $5.68 social value benefit per dollar invested.
