Who We Are

Founded by Ronni Kahn AO in 2004 after noticing the huge volume of food going to waste, OzHarvest quickly grew to become Australia’s leading food rescue organisation. Food is at our core, saving surplus food from ending up in landfill and delivering it to charities that help feed people in need. We are committed to halving food waste by 2030, inspiring and influencing others to do the same, and transforming lives through education.


What We Do

Our Impact


Food Donors

We collect good quality surplus food from a network of donors including supermarkets, cafes, delis, hotels, airlines and restaurants, then deliver direct and free of charge to charities nationally.



OzHarvest is committed to helping vulnerable people by delivering delicious, nutritious food to charities across Australia that feed those in need.


Meals Delivered

Starting with one van in Sydney back in 2004, OzHarvest has grown to become a national charity. 250 million meals later, it was obviously a good idea!

Global Harvest

OzHarvest has spread its wings overseas in a bid to tackle global food waste and reduce hunger. Our unique model has been introduced in five countries embracing our vision for a world when no-one goes hungry and food is valued not wasted.
