OzHarvest rescues good quality, surplus food, free of charge from registered businesses only. This food is then delivered to charity agencies in the local area.
We CAN collect: All perishable food / frozen food (including dairy, fish and meat, fresh juice) which is on or before its ‘use by date’ as long as it is still fit for human consumption; all non-perishable food even if it is up to 3 months past its ‘best before date’.
Please ensure that all food items are kept food safe until the collection. We cater for the most vulnerable in the community and follow strict food safety standards. Our drivers are trained to spot hazards and are instructed to refuse any items they find unsafe.
By saving quality excess food, you are not only reducing your own waste and disposal costs, but greatly assisting people in need in your community!https://twitter.com/ozharvest
