OzHarvest Southern Highlands is OzHarvest’s newest regional chapter, starting in August 2017! Begun by its coordinator, Ana Maria Salinas, who wanted to reduce the amount of food wasted in the Southern Highlands, the chapter collects surplus food from businesses like Woolworths and Harris Farm in Bowral and delivers it to a number of local organisations to help feed those in need.
Agencies like Wingecarribee Family Support Service and The Bowral Youth Refuge receive rescued food which allows the people they support to eat a variety of healthy food they might not otherwise have access to and helps the agencies save money which they can invest in other support services.

It is free and anonymous, and you can search services to find food, housing, healthcare, counselling, legal advice, addiction treatment.
