You might not think that your food scraps are glam in any way, but we’d bet that the guys over at OzHarvest would disagree with you. They’ve just opened Australia’s first rescued food-only supermarket—its goal is to save food that would have been otherwise wasted and redistribute it to people who actually need it.
What does this mean? Well, they’ve adopted a ‘take what you need, give if you can’ model, so no, they haven’t gone totally Sydney on you, charging top dollar for rescued food. That’s just not how OzHarvest rolls.
The supermarket is on the ground floor of the TOGA Addison Project in Kensington—a donated retail space with biiiiig plans (so stay tuned for that). The OzHarvest Market can be found at 147 Anzac Parade, Kensington and is open weekdays, 10am – 2pm. The best bit? It’s available to everyone, but especially those in need.
