Logo for OzHarvest SA

Founded in 2004, OzHarvest is a non-denominational charity that rescues excess food which would otherwise be discarded. This excess is distributed to charities supporting the vulnerable in Sydney, Newcastle, Adelaide and Brisbane In Adelaide we currently rescue and distribute on average 60,000 meals per month to more than 65 different South Australian charities. This good food comes from more than 390 different Adelaide food businesses during the week as well as Adelaide Central Markets and the Adelaide Showgrounds Farmers Markets on Saturdays and Sundays. OzHarvest believes that good food should not go to waste. In fact, by distributing it to those in need, we turn excess food into a resource and save thousands of kilograms of food from being dumped as landfill each year. Food is generously donated by those with excess. By distributing this food to various charities, we assist them to better and more efficiently address the underlying social problems in our society. With this support charities are able to redirect funding to programs assisting those who are disadvantaged or at risk. OzHarvest provides this service at no cost to food donors and recipients
