Reducing Food Waste together with

Why does reducing food waste matter?

Did you know throwing away just one hamburger wastes just as much water as taking a 90 minute shower? We currently waste a huge 7.6 million tons of food every year - that's 312kg per Australian to put it into perspective. From the beginning of the manufacturing process to leftovers we're throwing out, there's an environmental impact every step of the way when it comes to food consumption


Reduction in greenhouse gases

Lowering food waste means less organic material decomposing in landfills, which reduces methane emissions, a potent greenhouse gas.


Resource conservation

Decreasing food waste conserves water, energy, and other resources used in food production, reducing overall environmental strain.


Community support

Initiatives to donate surplus food support local communities, addressing food insecurity and contributing to social welfare.

What can we do?


OzHarvest collects quality surplus from your workplaces and turns it into meals that those in need within local communities can truly use.
