We love rolling in to Toowoomba on Tuesday's and Thursday's, delivering rescued produce to organisations like our friends at Base Services.
Base Services is a community organisation that exists to Build up, Accept, Support and Encourage vulnerable groups through a range of programs and events. OzHarvest has been working with Base for over a year, providing thumbs-up worthy fruit, veggies and bread every week, much of which is whipped up into nutritious lunches in their Basement Soup Kitchen.
With the generous support of Brisbane Showgrounds and Lockyer Valley Regional Council, we were able to rescue 745kg – that’s 2,235 meals! - of award-winning, picture-perfect, absolutely delicious fruit, vegetables and dairy from the Royal Queensland Show!
We were stoked to be able to share this produce with our charity friends, including Harvest Angels Inc. (pictured), Redland Community Centre and SANDBAG.
We're #cookingforacause with Arcadis today! Using rescued ingredients, hard work and lots of love, all meals today will be heading to The Salvos Street Level in Fortitude Valley for their Thursday community meal 💛
