Since launching in late 2014, OzHarvest WA has experienced an incredible journey which has seen us reach many achievements and successes through our food rescue service, nutritional education programs, events and campaigns.
After just 2.5 years of operation, we now have four food rescue vehicles on the road (named Babs, Chook, Dejon and Elvis) and are currently redistributing, on average, 70 tonnes of quality surplus food each month to more than 80 charitable agencies across Perth and the greater metropolitan area.
Our sensational team is supported by an army of 150 + volunteers who regularly give their time and talents through admin support, container washing, events and assisting in the vans. Thanks to the support of our yellow army, we have participated in many leading local events including Think.Eat.Save, Good Food + Wine Show, Night Noodle Markets and Margaret River Gourmet Escape.
We are also proud to facilitate OzHarvest’s NEST education program and Cooking for a Cause, which sees corporate teams get creative with our rescued produce to create delicious meals for those in need.
We are extremely grateful to have the backing of many local supporters including our key partner Santos and the nib Foundation and look forward to continuing our incredible adventure on the west coast!
