It was great to attend Waste 2016 last week and meet lots of people who are helping to keep food out of landfill.
One of these groups is REAP Coffs Harbour. It is a regional chapter of Sydney’s ‘OzHarvest’. Led by founder Julie, REAP rescues food that is about to be thrown away from supermarkets, bakeries, cafes and restaurants … and give it to families in need. Any food they can’t share is taken to a local community garden where it is fed to the animals or made into yummy compost!
In just 2 years this happy band of 30 volunteers has saved a whopping 65 TONNES of food from going to landfill! That’s FANTASTIC, but they do ask themselves every day “why is there so much leftover food?”
REAP is always happy to pick up extra and leftover local food. Luckily, local building company Hibbard Homes sponsors their fuel costs. (YAY!) REAP has also recently raised $50,000 to purchase a refrigerated truck and they are currently seeking spare cool room space so they can store food longer.
To donate food or cash to REAP Coffs Harbour you can contact Julie on 0421 430 175.
