GOLD COAST OZ HARVEST FOOD RESCUE SUPPORT
I drove for OzHarvest for around 6 months down in Canberra, it was eye opening to say the least. Seeing the amount of food that used to be thrown out and seeing the people who depend now on that food.
The spirit around the program between the people that operate the vans and the people that use the vans is like a family. When I heard that here on the Gold Coast that one of the vans needs to be retired it really made me quite emotional. For I know personally what this van going out of service is going to mean to so many.
Please join me in raising the much needed funds to keep the services going on the Gold Coast.
Here is a little bit of information on OzHarvest and we would so appreciate your support and the impact it will have directly helping people in need and supporting over 65 charities up and down the coast.
Average kgs rescued per day = 2,200 (3 vans operating – North, South and Central) = over 6,000 meals per day
Average monthly kgs rescued = 48,900 (includes Sunday markets) = almost 150,000 meals per month
Total kgs rescued last FY18/19 = 587, 089 = approx. 1.7 million meals
Total meal equivalent delivered since inception = approx. 5.9 million meals
