Established in 2013, OzHarvest Gold Coast now delivers more than 33,000 meals a week to people in need throughout the Gold Coast area and all the way to Tweed. Our three yellow vans are affectionately named Izzy (North run), Cody (South run), and our newest vehicle Gladiator (Central run).
To meet the rise in demand for food relief due to COVID-19, the Gold Coast team introduced two new initiatives, Food Hampers and Cooked Meals. Over 1,500 hampers were created and distributed from August-October, getting much-needed food to communities in need. With the help of ‘hospitality heroes’ Tweed Heads Bowls Club and Paradox Coffee Roaster more than 3,000 meals were cooked and delivered! An additional seven new charities are being supported throughout the region.
OzHarvest Gold Coast has an incredible yellow army of 109 volunteers, who generously donate their time, whether it be once a week or once every few months. Without them we would not be able to support the amount of people they currently do. If you are interested in volunteering with us, please click the button below.
FEAST (Food Education and Sustainability Training) is a curriculum aligned program aimed at year 5 and 6 students. FEAST runs for 7-10 weeks and is a STEM project-based learning program focusing on food and sustainability. The teacher-led program can be adapted and changed to suit your school’s needs.
Like any good FEAST, it’s designed to be fun, engaging and filled with good food.
