OzHarvest Food Rescue Milestone!

OzHarvest Food Rescue Milestone!

OzHarvest and Adelaide Central Market believes that good food should not go to waste….so we formed a partnership 2 years ago with the aim of distributing excess market produce to charities supporting vulnerable people in our city. In fact OzHarvest has helped us turn excess food into a resource and save thousands of kilograms of food from being dumped as landfill each year.

Since partnering up 2 years ago, OzHarvest and Adelaide Central Market have rescued close to 50,000 meals which means 15,000 kgs of good food has been saved from landfill and 225 tonnes CO2 greenhouse gases have been avoided from the atmosphere.  Quite an impressive result!

Thanks to the dedicated team of volunteers and support of our traders, Adelaide Central Market has significantly contributed to the SA total of almost 1 million rescued meals.

Congratulations to our stall holders for their contribution and support of food rescue in Adelaide!
