Imagine a world where good food isn’t wasted and everyone gets to enjoy a Christmas dinner… pretty nice, huh?
Food insecurity is on the rise in Australia, meaning more Aussie families are struggling to get food on the table, let alone, a meal.
That’s where OzHarvest and YOU step in.
What does OzHarvest do?
OzHarvest operates across Australia, rescuing over 180 tonnes of food each week from over 3500 food donors including supermarkets, hotels, airports, wholesalers, farmers, corporate events, catering companies, shopping centers, delis, cafes, restaurants, film and TV shoots and boardrooms.

This morning we received a beautiful message from a yellow-hearted superstar on our 100 Million Meal Appeal donations page. We love it so much, we just have to share it! – Hello my name is Ammy and I'm 11. Instead of presents for my birthday I asked my friends to bring a gold coin donation to my party. I chose OzHarvest as one of my favourite charities. I listened to a podcast about Ronni Kahn and I think she is a remarkable person to think of all the people who didn't have enough food and start OzHarvest. I'm very happy to have raised $32.70 for you. Thank you. Ammy – We 💛 you, Ammy!
The food rescued is then delivered to families in need, but at Christmas this gesture becomes so much more than filling an empty belly. It provides dignity, nourishment, care, connection and love at a time when people need it the most.
Here’s how you can help out
For every $1 donated, OzHarvest will provide two nourishing meals to people in need. There is no such thing as giving too little – every dollar counts.
