The residents of the Fernbank retirement village in St Ives generously donated over 200 cans of food to Oz Harvest in September to coincide with ‘Good Food Month’.
OzHarvest is the first perishable food rescue organisation in Australia collecting quality excess food from commercial outlets and delivering it, direct and free of charge, to 500 charities providing much needed assistance to vulnerable men, women and children across Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Melbourne and Newcastle. OzHarvest is the only food rescue organisation in Australia collecting surplus food from all types of food providers including fruit and vegetable markets, supermarkets, hotels, wholesalers, farmers, stadiums, corporate events, catering companies, shopping centres, delis, cafes, restaurants, film and TV shoots, and boardrooms.
Dozens of generous Fernbank residents provided a range of canned goods to the charity in an effort to assist those in need. For more information on Oz Harvest, please visit www.ozharvest.org.
