A new lease of life for the OzHarvest Market

Posted by on October 10, 2017

The OzHarvest Market in Sydney, Australia’s first surplus food market, will remain open well into 2018 thanks to property owners TOGA extending our lease!

The extension means we can keep providing rescued food for people doing it tough and spreading awareness of the need to reduce food waste. Incredibly, in just 5 months since the OzHarvest Market opened its doors it’s received enough donations to enable OzHarvest to provide an extra 100,000 meals to people in need!

The OzHarvest Market is Australia’s first ever rescued food market, stocked with produce that has either been donated or would otherwise go to waste, but is perfectly edible. Based on a ‘take what you need, give if you can’ philosophy, our purpose is to make rescued food available to everyone, especially those who need it most.

If you want to be part of this amazing project we’re always looking for volunteers who can donate their time regularly to help keep the doors open. Please get in touch with us on [email protected] to find out more and get involved!
