The food we collect is primarily surplus food that is would otherwise have gone to landfill from a wide range of food businesses, such as:
- Supermarkets and food retailers
- Hospitality businesses
- Food manufacturers
- Agricultural businesses and growers
We work closely with these partners, their staff and our volunteers, to make sure the food we rescue and redistribute is suitable for human consumption and meets the stringent food safety standards of the Good Samaritan Act.
The type of food we have in stock varies from week to week, but regularly includes fruit and vegetables, meat, cooked meals and prepacked items, dry goods, bread and baked goods, drinks, dairy and eggs.
