Shout lunch and help OzHarvest fight hunger

20 May 2011

Today, Ronnie Kahn, Australia’s Local Hero 2010, is encouraging all Australians to donate the money they would normally spend on lunch to Shout Lunch Fight Hunger, a one-day initiative aimed at helping the hungry, homeless and needy.

All money raised will go to OzHarvest, a not-for-profit organisation that rescues unwanted food from restaurants, retailers, food outlets and corporate kitchens across Sydney, Canberra, Newcastle, Wollongong and Adelaide. OzHarvest distributes the rescued food to charities and homeless shelters daily, feeding communities in need.

Just one dollar equals one meal - $10 provides 10 meals to disadvantaged Australians.

Since 2004, OzHarvest has delivered a staggering eight million meals to communities in need. Not only does OzHarvest help the disadvantaged, it also diverts good food from being dumped as landfill.
