OzHarvest Sunshine Coast continues to grow and thrive. Since commencing operations in August 2014, 160,000 kg of excess quality food has been rescued and redistributed – the equivalent of about 480,000 meals!
OzHarvest Sunshine Coast is doing its part to help feed vulnerable community members in the Sunshine Coast while at the same time reducing the amount of food that finds its way into landfill. We are proud to be part of an initiative that seeks to lend a helping hand to those who are less fortunate and at the same time do our part to help the environment.
In almost four years, we have expanded our operations significantly – providing quality surplus food to 30 charities, community organisations, churches, programs and schools from Gympie all the way down the Coast and into the Hinterland. This has been accomplished through the generous donations of our local producers and suppliers. With our new office and OzHarvest van, our food rescue operations can now reach out to more producers, charities and locations up and down the Coast. We also continue our advocacy and education efforts – spreading the word that wasting food wastes everything. We can each be part of the solution.
