Fight Food Waste

OzHarvest

OzHarvest is Australia’s leading food rescue organisation, collecting quality excess food from commercial outlets and delivering it directly to more than 1300 charities supporting people in need across the country. OzHarvest operates nationally, rescuing over 180 tonnes of food each week from over 3,500 food donors including supermarkets, hotels, airports, wholesalers, farmers, corporate events, catering companies, shopping centres, delis, cafes, restaurants, film and TV shoots and boardrooms. Confoil is extremely proud to support OzHarvest by providing donated food containers to their Cooking for a Cause events, as well as donating the time of our staff towards corporate volunteering days.

Most recently Confoil have committed to supporting FEAST. FEAST is a Year 5 and 6 food waste education program from OzHarvest. The program runs for 7-10 weeks and is a STEM project-based learning program focusing on food and fibre and the cross-curriculum priority of Sustainability.
OzHarvest is specifically focused on working towards halving food waste per capita by 2030. Working with their  network of partners, food donors, volunteers, community organisations and using their voice to influence others and inspire action. The FEAST program is in-line with these broader goals, tackling the issue of food waste from the ground up.

 

"It’s rewarding to see the positive ripple effect that this partnership brings about within local  communities, as the more than 300 children involved, share their new knowledge about reducing food waste with family and friends! We much appreciate Confoil’s contribution towards our goal to bring FEAST into all primary schools across Australia and help halve food waste by 2030."
