Food relief during COVID-19

COVID-19 saw a drastic increase in demand for food relief in the Canberra and Queanbeyan region. In response, OzHarvest Canberra launched a Cooked Meals Pilot Program to support the local community. By working in partnership with the National Convention Centre, OzHarvest were able to source ready-cooked meals and distribute them on a weekly basis to aid agencies to support the need of their clients for nourishing meals. This program will continue to run until the end of June 2021.

NEST

Our NEST program is an easy and fun way to learn healthy eating habits and how to cook simple and low-cost meals in just six weeks. 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.

OzHarvest NEST is aligned with the Australian Dietary Guidelines and works with everyone to set realistic goals around healthy eating, which are reviewed and revised each week, so real and lasting change can be made.
