OzHarvest Melbourne opens

by admin

Dear friends and supporters,

We are thrilled to announce that OzHarvest has opened our newest office in Melbourne.

OzHarvest is the nation’s leading food-rescue operation that has been feeding Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong, Adelaide and Brisbane’s hungry since 2004.

The increasing demand for OzHarvest to expand our work into other areas has led us to this exciting expansion into Melbourne where every day there is surplus food, needing to be rescued and hungry people, in need of quality food and nourishment.

We ask you, our supporters and friends, to spread the word far and wide – to your colleagues, friends, family – anyone you know – who has a hungry heart to share the work that we do.

OzHarvest Melbourne is seeking help in many ways; including:

  • Seeking potential food donors: OzHarvest collects perishable surplus food from restaurants, cafes, wholesalers, suppliers and distributors, supermarkets, grocers, events, boardroom functions, corporate kitchens and produce growers
  • If you are currently a food donor with a national presence could you please share with your business partners the good news that our services are now available in Melbourne
  • Helping agencies that need help: OzHarvest currently delivers food to more than 510 charities around the country, if you know of a place in need of food in Melbourne please let us know
  • Volunteers: If you know anyone seeking to volunteer for an incredible cause we are looking for drivers, office and administration help, markets and PR
  • Corporate support so we can continue the work we do: OzHarvest is completely funded by generous donations and in-kind support from the business sector, philanthropists as well as individuals. There are many ways to get involved and be aligned with the good work we do from a corporate level. Just ask our major partners Goodman Foundation, Macquarie Foundation, Caltex, Commonwealth Bank, ING Direct and more.

For more information, to donate food or to volunteer, please contact our Melbourne team on: 1800 108 006 or via email [email protected]
