Since launching in late 2014, OzHarvest Perth 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 4.5 years of operation, we now have seven food rescue vehicles on the road (named Babs, Chook, Dejon, Elvis, Ginger and ‘H’) and are currently redistributing, on average, 100 tonnes of quality surplus food each month to more than 90 charitable agencies across Perth and the greater metropolitan area.
Our sensational team is supported by an army of 230 + 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 the Night Noodle Markets.
We are also proud to facilitate OzHarvest’s 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 local partners Telethon Trust and Merchant Group and look forward to continuing our incredible adventure on the west coast!
