A Day in the Van with Oz Harvest
About a week ago I was privileged to spend a day on the road with one of the Oz Harvest food vans, rescuing unwanted food from Cafés, Supermarkets, Corporate Offices and Function centres around Melbourne.
We then delivered that food to people in desperate need of a good feed.
I was amazed at the amount of food that we rescued that otherwise would have gone to waste and we only covered a small portion of Melbourne that day and were limited to the amount that we could pick up in the van.
The entire experience was rewarding, overwhelming, emotional and humbling, from the generosity of the businesses we picked up from, to the gratitude of the many people and organisations we delivered to.
What an amazing day with an extremely incredible organisation! If you would like more information or to get involved or donate, please visit the Oz Harvest website here.
