OzHarvest Brisbane is thrilled to be named the official charity partner for Brisbane Times Good Food Month presented by Citi for the third year running. OzHarvest will offer food-lovers events and experiences that not only taste good, but are also good for the soul.
All events will raise essential funds for OzHarvest Brisbane to continue rescuing surplus food to feed people in need.
Take part in a number of foodie events with soul during the month of July, including the upcoming Think.Eat.Save event to be held at St Stephen’s Cathedral on Monday, 25 July where 1000 people will be fed a delicious, free hot meal prepared from quality rescued food that would otherwise have ended up in landfill.
Collaborating with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the UN’s Food Agriculture Organisation (FAO) Global Initiative on Food Loss and Waste Reduction (SAVE FOOD), OzHarvest will be organising the Think.Eat.Save event to raise awareness on global food loss and waste reduction. The event also contributes to the FAO-UNEP Sustainable Food Systems Programme.
Food waste is currently costing Australians up to $10 billion each year, while two million people still rely on food relief.
