Since we welcomed ‘Marigold’ to the OzHarvest family of food rescue vehicles just under two months ago, we have already delivered 50,000 meals to people in need in the area South of Adelaide. Such a great start!
We now deliver food to 14 charities down South, including the Salvation Army in Noarlunga, Aldinga Beach Children’s Centre and Re-Engage Youth Services in Christies Beach.
Thank you so much to all the food donors supporting us in preventing food waste and spreading goodness! Some of our fabulous donors are Colonnades Shopping Centre retailers, Home Grain Bakery, Fruit Loopz, Moana Heights IGA Fresh, Serafino and so many more. Without your support we couldn’t deliver so much goodness to people in need.
The launch of the third van on 28 August happened short after we celebrated a huge milestone of delivering the equivalent of 2 million meals in central and northern Adelaide. The addition of Marigold enables us to provide a truly city-wide food rescue service and a new milestone is likely to follow shortly!
