Food Rescue

OzHarvest Adelaide has been getting good food to people in need since 2011. Every week, our four vans named Bambino, Chino, Frankie and Sunny rescue around 15,000kg of quality surplus food, and deliver more than 45,000 meals to people in need throughout Adelaide.

Food Relief during COVID

In the wake of COVID-19, the Adelaide introduced four new food relief initiatives to meet the rise in demand. More than 4,000 food hampers have been created and distributed to vulnerable communities since March 2020 to date. This included international students from June to August 2020. Working with local ‘hospitality heroes’ Adelaide Oval, Parliament House, The Food Print Experience and amazing volunteers in the OzHarvest kitchens, over 30,000 nourishing meals have been cooked and delivered.

From March-August 2020, food relief was extended to 12 regional areas of South Australia, helping 1,300 people and for two months a Mobile Market provided food hampers to 800 people. 12 additional charities are now being supported including charities in the Adelaide Hills bushfire region.



An incredible team of volunteers in Adelaide work tirelessly, helping OzHarvest to reach more people in our community by assisting our food rescue drivers with our weekday food rescue runs, helping in the kitchen with Cooking For A Cause, assisting with practical session delivery of our NEST, Nourish, and FEAST education programs, growing food in our warehouse food garden, and providing much-needed general support for everything we do!

Shifts are generally based at our Hindmarsh warehouse and occur Monday to Friday during business hours, however we do have occasional out of hours events, such as farmers market weekend food rescue, fundraising events like sausage sizzles, and community festivals.

NEST is a six-week nutrition and health education program, teaching adults easy ways to cook and eat healthily on a budget through a series of practical and fun workshops.

Each NEST session is held at the same day and time each week for 2.5 hours. It includes fun interactive activities, practical cooking classes, and the sharing of a meal together.

The evidence-based program improves personal health, addresses food insecurity and is aligned with the Australian Dietary Guidelines. Our friendly team of nutritionists and dietitians work with everyone to set realistic goals around healthy eating, which are reviewed and revised each week, so real and lasting change can be made.
