For the fourth year, Frazer Jones teamed up with Australia’s leading food rescue organisation OzHarvest who led the 2016 Think.Eat.Save campaign in Australia and raise awareness of global food loss and waste reduction.
Monday, 25 July saw Think.Eat.Save events across the country showcasing some of the nation’s top chefs, politicians and celebrities uniting to take a stance against food waste, which is currently costing Australians up to $10 billion each year.
Thousands of members of the public were served a free hot meal including surplus soup and rescued stews made from produce that would have otherwise ended up as landfill.
In 2015 the event saw 11,000 people around the country served 13,400 meals made from rescued food served by over 400 volunteers.
Charlotte Perkins, Interim and Contract Specialist from Frazer Jones’ Sydney office volunteered her time in Martin Place this year.
“It was awesome! I got to do so many different things and meet lots of people from the community. It’s also a great feeling knowing you are helping people,” she said of the event.
