Guys, OzHarvest has moved into a little nook on Bourke Street and in a pretty timely fashion (we see you Plastic Free July) the food-rescue organisation has unveiled its first pop-up cafe with a zero-waste menu.
Partnering with Surry Hills’ local breakfast institution Gratia, OzHarvest has moved into the cafe’s space for the next three months. They’ll be serving up a low-waste menu with ingredients that were destined for the bin, such as goods from Brasserie Bread and Black Star Pastry. Even Black Star’s famous strawberry-watermelon cake will get a second life, reworked as a housemade jam.
OzHarvest’s executive chef Travis Harvey will be heading the kitchen—word on the street is he’ll be getting pretty creative with offcut ingredients like cauliflower leaves and breadcrumbs which will be turned into ramen noodle #bloodygenius. On top of that, absolutely alllllllllll the profits will be donated to OzHarvest to help the organisation deliver meals to those in need. And just so you know, every dollar you spend can help deliver two meals.
What: OzHarvest pop-up cafe at Gratia
When: Open Wednesday to Sunday, 8am-3pm
